ATHENS, Ala. (AP) - A 20-year-old Tennessee man accused of shooting a passing motorcyclist on a north Alabama highway plans to ask the court for youthful offender status.

The Athens News-Courier reports a lawyer for Noah Andrew McGlawn of Whiteville, Tenn., will seek youthful offender status at a hearing Wednesday in Limestone County Circuit Court.

McGlawn is charged with attempted murder in the Sept. 10 shooting of 23-year-old Brandon Matlock of Athens. If he is granted youthful offender status, McGlawn could get a milder sentence.

Athens police said the shooting suspect fled the scene, but that a man later called police and said he had shot a motorcyclist. Police said McGlawn told them he was angry at his father and "just wanted to shoot someone."

    Cloud cover has been persistent through the morning, but those clouds should start breaking up this afternoon. While we have been slow to warm under cloudy skies, highs should still push into the mid-70s with more sunshine late. ?
