Franklin County shooting suspect still on the run

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Ala. – A Franklin County man remains hospitalized following a shooting earlier this week. Now, a reward is being offered for the accused shooter who has eluded authorities up to this point.

According to deputies, Leobardo Donagustin walked up to a home on County Road 77 and shot the resident multiple times.

Sheriff Shannon Oliver says the incident happened between 1:30 and 2 p.m. Monday in the Mountain Star community. Investigators believe the suspect ran into a wooded area near the home after the shooting and hasn’t been seen since.

Authorities released an image of the car they believe Donagustin eventually left the area in. At this point, he could be anywhere.

Hopefully, some reward money will be an incentive for someone to provide the information investigators need.
