MOULTON, Ala. – The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office says an 87-year-old man is charged in a shooting that happened Wednesday afternoon.  L.C. Hall is accused of shooting a neighbor with a shotgun.

Sheriff Gene Mitchell said the incident happened about 4 p.m.  Hall, of 3256 County Road 70 in Moulton, is charged with attempted murder and assault.  The Sheriff said Hall had been in a feud with a neighbor, and went to the neighbor’s house and shot him once with a shotgun.

The other man was injured when the bird shot rounds struck him in his left shoulder.  The man was seriously hurt, but will survive. He was taken to a local hospital for treatment and then released.
