LIMESTONE COUNTY, Ala. - Authorities said one person was killed following a domestic dispute at a home on Corrie Lane Sunday night.

Multiple Limestone County Sheriff's Office Deputies and investigators were called to the house around 10 p.m. They first made contact with 70-year-old James Alfred Adams, who told law enforcement that he’d shot his 45-year-old son, Alfred Dewayne Adams, and that his son was trying to attack him.

Investigators said James Adams and his son, Alfred Dewayne Adams, were involved in an argument Sunday night. They further stated they believe James told Alfred he was going to bed. Alfred then walked into the bedroom and James shot him in the chest.

The wife of the shooter and the mother of the victim witnessed the incident. Deputies have questioned her as well as other family members and neighbors.

“Still have a lot of witnesses to talk to, let’s get some more evidence, particularly from forensic, then we’ll go from there," lead investigator Lt. Jay Stinnett said.

No charges or arrests have been made in this investigation.

“Some of the neighbors some other family members can tell us about stuff that was happening through the years," Stinnett said. “More than likely this will be presented to the grand jury."
