6 shootings in 48 hours in Huntsville

(WAFF) -

Let's just say it was a very busy weekend in Huntsville, especially for police who are investigating their 6th shooting, including one involving a police officer.

We'll break them all down for you at the top of the 5:00 & 6:00 shows this morning.

The latest shooting happened overnight during a home invasion where a man was shot at a home on Eastbrooke Drive. Officers told us the suspect went into the home and shot a man. He's now in serious condition at the hospital. Police have not tracked down the gunman.

As for the police involved shooting... keep in mind no one was hit when officers fired their weapons. 44 year-old Daniel Crumbley was arrested during a domestic situation. His girlfriend called 911 saying he was causing problems inside the home. According to police, officers told him to drop the gun but instead raised it at them and that's when officers fired at Crumbley. All three police officers are on paid leave.

Charter Schools are expected to be the big story this week. There's a good chance the Alabama House might approve the bill and send it to the governor by the end of the week. We'll have that for you during the 5:30 half hour.

The court case captivating the state will pick back up today. Joyce Garrard is the grandmother charged with capital murder. She's accused of making her granddaughter, Savannah Hardin run as punishment for lying about eating a candy bar before she collapsed and died.

Yay the rain is over, for now! At least we're not like Boston, which officially broke it's snowiest winter since 1872.

New snow Sunday helped put the city over the top with 108 inches of snow.

Let's get this week started right, I'll see you on the air.
