DECATUR, Ala. (WAFF) - A 21 year old man was arrested last week on firearm and drug charges in Decatur.

Back in January, Decatur police responded to reports of a shooting at the Speed-Z gas station on West Moulton Street. Upon arrival, officers learned two occupied vehicles were struck by multiple shots.
