On June 5, two men had an altercation and both were shot. They are hospitalized at Regional Medical Center of Central Alabama and they will be arrested once released.

The shooting occurred on Gravel Hill Road. According to Bond, one of the vehicles associated with the two men wound up in Greenville and taking out a utility pole.

On June 6, there was a shooting that started on Conway Lane where a man was shot in both arms over a dispute.

Bond said, “The offender and his girlfriend wound up on Poplar Road where another argument took place and a gun was discharged striking the girlfriend across the temple.”

According to Bond, they looked for the offender the rest of the night and all day Sunday. They finally located the subject of Pineapple Highway.

The BCSO requested the assistance of the Greenville Police Department SRT in making the arrest and the subject, Hunter Hall, willingly gave himself up to authorities without incident.
