HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Limestone County Sheriff’s deputies and investigators responded late Thursday night to a domestic violence incident that stemmed from an apparent “love triangle” in the 25000 block of Watson Lane in Elkmont. Gunfire erupted at that residence after a confrontation escalated to physical assault and baby clothes being set on fire inside the trailer.
One man suffered several non-life threatening gunshot wounds and drove himself to the Huntsville Hospital, telling officers there that he had been shot in a road rage incident in Limestone County.
Madison County Sheriff’s Office notified Limestone County dispatchers around the same time deputies were responding to the initial call on Watson Lane, so it was unknown at the time that the two calls were part of the same incident.
The man who was shot was apparently in a romantic relationship with a woman who lived on Watson Lane with her infant, another boyfriend and his brother.
He arrived at that residence knocking on the door, and after the woman answered the door, he began making accusations and slapped the girlfriend and other boyfriend, then set a baby outfit on fire that was hanging by the wall of the trailer.
The brother walked in from the back of the residence with a pistol and opened fire on the intruder, who then left the scene.
The case is currently under investigation and no arrests have been made at this time. It will likely be sent to a grand jury to determine charges.
