JEFFERSON COUNTY — The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after receiving a call of shots fired in an apartment complex in unincorporated Jefferson County.
Several deputies were dispatched to the Summit Ridge Apartments around 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, July 14. The complex is off Haversham Drive.
Crime scene tape was placed in front of one of the apartments while detectives combed the scene.
Capt. David Agee with the sheriff’s office said a woman on the scene told investigators that her husband shot the father of her child after he entered their home and attacked her. The woman said the father of her child had a pistol, so her husband got his own pistol and shot the man.
The man was taken to the hospital for treatment.
