NEW MARKET, Ala. – Deputies say a man died in the hospital Wednesday night, after being shot in the wrist and upper torso at a New Market home early Wednesday morning.

The incident took place around 3 a.m. at the 100 block of Buddy Williamson Road.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office says Thomas Murphree and Elyssa Nelson got into a physical argument which resulted in Nelson shooting Murphree twice before she ran to the neighbors.

MedFlight emergency crews flew Murphree to Huntsville Hospital where he died of his injuries at 4:53 p.m.

Investigators remained at the scene processing evidence and obtained a search warrant to continue a search for further evidence.

Investigators will send their findings to the district attorney’s office to present to a grand jury.
