ATHENS, Ala. (WHNT) – Noah Andrew McGlawn was scheduled for ar arraignment in Limestone County Circuit Court Tuesday afternoon. Instead, his case was bound over to a grand jury for review.
McGlawn was originally charged with attempted murder and shooting into an occupied vehicle following the September 10th shooting of a motorcyclist on Highway 72 in Athens. Brandon Matlock told police he was passing a green SUV when he looked over and saw the driver pointing a gun at him. Several shots were fired. Matlock was hit in the arm and in the back. He was flown to Huntsville Hospital for treatment.
A short time later, McGlawn allegedly contacted Decatur Police and arranged to surrender to them and Athens Police at a Chevron gas station on Alabama 67 west of I-65.
Police say McGlawn told them he was mad at his father and just wanted to shoot someone. He said he had been driving around all day and when the motorcycle passed him, he pulled his .22 caliber pistol out and shot the man. McGlawn said he didn’t know the victim and had never seen him before.
