FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) -

A Franklin County grand jury indicted a man on attempted murder in connection with an officer-involved shooting that happened in May.

Waylan McClellan was arrested in connection with the shooting.

According to police, an officer was responding to a call about a suspicious person on Filmore Street in Russellville when he attempted to stop McClellan. Authorities said McClellan started to fight the officer and managed to get his gun. The two fought over the gun and the officer reportedly shot McClellan twice.

McClellan and the officer were taken to the hospital and treated for their injuries.

McClellan was indicted Wednesday on attempted murder, disarming a police officer, theft of property and felon possession of a firearm.
