When sheriff’s deputies responded to a report of a man with a gun on a rural Alabama road, they quickly located both the man and his female accomplice—both of whom were tending to the man’s serious gunshot wound.
According to local media reports, investigators discovered the man and woman had knocked on the door of a rural McCalla home earlier in the day. They were both wearing hoodies and neither would identify themselves to the homeowner inside, so the homeowner grabbed his gun and told the suspects he was armed.
When the homeowner looked out again, he saw one person running away and opened the door, only to find the male crouched down in the entryway. When the man continued to advance, the homeowner fired a shot and struck the suspect, who fled on foot to find his accomplice. In a strange twist, detectives later learned one of the suspects is the niece of the homeowner.
