(WAFF) - Deputy recovering after Wednesday night shooting
The State Bureau of investigation has taken the lead over the case of a shooting that left a Lauderdale County deputy and one other person shot Wednesday night. Officials said the homeowner opened fire first, wounding Deputy Randall McCrary in the chest. McCrary returned fire, striking the homeowner. They say that Deputy McCrary did not make forceful entry into the home and simply knocked at the front door to serve the warrant. The name and age of the suspect remain unknown at this time but Chief Deputy Richard Richey says the suspect lives at the home with his mother. Officials said McCrary was talking before being transported. They said he has an injury to the spleen and had to undergo surgery late Wednesday night, but is in good condition. The condition of the homeowner is not known at this time.
