ALBERTVILLE, Ala. - Albertville Police confirm Jeremy Heath Freeman turned himself in at the police department sometime before midnight. Police wanted Freeman for attempted murder.
Albertville Police got a call from medical staff at Marshall Medical Center South saying a woman had been shot. Officers responded to the hospital. “We started the process. We discovered that it all stemmed from a domestic situation out on Water Plant Road, just outside of the city,” said Assistant Chief Jamie Smith.
Smith said Freeman got into an argument with his wife. “She was getting into a vehicle to leave, and he retrieved a pistol and fired what I understand was one round. The bullet actually didn’t strike her. It went through the glass of the vehicle, threw glass all over her and cut her up in several places,” Smith continued.
Smith says Freeman left, and his wife went to the hospital. Albertville Police put out a notice about Freeman, asking for the public's help in finding him. Initially, officers encouraged residents to use caution if they saw him. “Because of what had happened, his state of mind. You never know what you’re dealing with, what somebody’s capable of,” Smith said, “Last night shortly before midnight he was brought to the police department here by some of his family and turned himself in.”
Officers expect to charge Freeman with attempted murder.
Officers say the couple has a history of domestic violence. In fact, officers visited the home on several occasions in the past.
