Decatur Police: Man Defends Sister, Shoots Her Estranged Husband

DECATUR, Ala. (WHNT) – Police are investigating a domestic shooting that happened before noon Monday at 1007 7th Avenue SW.

Police say they were called to the home because the homeowner, Jason Brown, and his sister, Joy McClimans, wanted Joy’s estranged husband to leave.  Officers warned Gary Lynn McClimans II to go away and leave the two alone.

Police say Gary McClimans left, but returned just a few minutes later and kicked the door in, which was locked.

Police say Jason Brown fired two shots from a 9mm pistol, hitting Gary McClimans twice in the chest.

McClimans was flown to Huntsville Hospital by Air Evac.

Police say they’ve been called to this home several times in the last two months.  Gary McClimans II lives in Trinity.  The investigation continues.
