GRANT, Ala. (WHNT) — The Marshall County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) arrested two people in relation to a shooting on Sunday.
The arrests came after authorities located a suspect they were searching for in the woods near Grant.
On July 30, deputies responded to a shot fired call in the 2500 block of Eleven-Forty Road. It was determined that unknown shooters had fired multiple rounds into a home from a vehicle.
The only person in the home sustained a minor injury.
On Wednesday, August 2, investigators were able to identify the vehicle and several potential suspects. A vehicle was seen in the area of Horseshoe Bend and Swearengen Road. When a deputy attempted to stop the vehicle, the driver sped off attempting to elude the police.
They turned onto Olinger Road and came to a stop. A man was seen fleeing the vehicle into the wooded area nearby as a female driver remained in her seat.
The driver was identified as Francis Nicole Moore, 34, and the man as Daniel Ryan Long, 33, both of Grant.
Deputies learned that Long allegedly had a handgun when he fled. The Albertville Police Department sent a K-9 into the woods, where he was later found hiding in an overgrown field near a vacant house. Both Moore and Long were taken into custody.
Moore was charged with attempting to elude and transported to the county jail, where she was found to have ‘an amount of suspected methamphetamine and a syringe.’ She was additionally charged with possession of a controlled substance and possession of drug paraphernalia.
Several drug paraphernalia ‘items’ were found near where deputies located Long. He was subsequently charged with attempting to elude and possession of drug paraphernalia.
At this time, no charges have been filed in the shooting incident, however, both Moore and Long are considered persons of interest. MCSO asks that if you have any information regarding the shooting, to please contact the investigators at 256-582-2034.
