Accidental Shooting in Shiloh

 

 

Sheriff Jimmy Harris states as follows:

 

            Sheriff Jimmy Harris reports that on June 23rd around 12:30 am Deputies and Investigators responded to 1766 Main Street in Shiloh to a possible gunshot victim. When Deputies arrived they found Brandon King, 25 of Fort Payne had sustained a gunshot wound. King was transported to Huntsville Hospital where he is in stable condition. Christopher Yarbrough, 25 of Rainsville was located in the woods close to the residence where the incident happened. Yarbrough was believed to have been involved in the shooting. Yarbrough was taken to DeKalb County Sheriff’s Office by Investigators for questioning. During the investigation of the incident it was discovered the shooting was believed to be an accident. Alcohol and Marijuana is believed to have contributed to the accident. Yarbrough was arrested on the charge of Domestic Violence for a separate incident that happened prior to the shooting. This is still an ongoing investigation as Investigators are still gathering information about this case. Investigators will submit their findings to the District Attorney’s Office to see if this case will be taken to Grand Jury.

Sheriff Harris states “thanks to the Deputies, Investigators, Fort Payne, Rainsville, and Fyffe Police Departments for helping with this case and their quick response to the scene.”
