HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - Huntsville Police arrested 47-year-old James Adell Baugh, owner of One Hour Bonding for the shooting death of 19-year-old Danny Laray Moore.

Baugh is charged with one count of murder for the shooting that happened Thursday night at 3414 Deerfield Road. Moore's body was found in the front yard with a gunshot wound to the head.

Police say Baugh shot Moore while trying to apprehend him for a revoked bond.

"He has had a recent history of some charges that were against him, and in 2008, he had a robbery charge," said Huntsville Police spokesman Dr. Harry Hobbs.

Hobbs says what happened after Baugh arrived at the home is still unclear. Police are investigating how Baugh's gun went off, but Hobbs says they are certain about one thing.

"From our reports, we have ascertained that there was no struggle," he explained.

Baugh was booked into the Madison County Jail and later released on bond.

Dr. Hobbs says police departments generally do not have direct relationships with bail bonding companies and cannot regulate how they operate.

"We don't work in concert, the functions they perform for the state of Alabama is covered under other regulations and ordinances, separate from law enforcement," said Dr. Hobbs.
