GUNTERSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The Guntersville Police Department have released news details in a double shooting late Friday afternoon that left one man dead.

The incident occurred at approximately 5:30 p.m., when police from multiple law enforcement agencies responded to a 911 call reporting two people had been shot on Edmonds Road.

When they arrived on the scene at CHS Mobile Homes, authorities found James Daugette, 56, Sandra Daugette, 55, had been shot.

Both victims were transported to Huntsville Hospital, where James Daugette later died.

Sandra Daugette remains in stable condition.

Law enforcement quickly zeroed in on a suspect, 75-year-old Albert Patterson, tracking him down at a neighboring residence.

Police say Patterson exited his home and greeted them with a shotgun, which he put down hesitantly after some prodding.

Patterson was reportedly combative with officers, failing to comply with direct orders. Despite his lack of cooperation, he was ultimately taken into custody with no injuries.

A warrant was immediately issued for his arrest and Patterson was charged with Murder and Attempted Murder.

An investigation into the incident has revealed that Patterson is the father of Sandra Daugette and the decedent her husband.

Judge Mitch Floyd set his bond at $150,000.

Patterson remains in custody at the Marshall County Jail.
