One man is dead and another wounded after gunfire at a home in Pleasant Valley. According to Sheriff Matthew Wade, Franklin Boozer waited at a man’s home and ambushed him with gunfire from an AR-15 while the man was still in his truck. The victim got out of his truck and ran into his barn, getting struck at least four times. That’s when investigators say the man grabbed his shotgun from the barn and shot Boozer.
After that, Boozer took off in the man’s truck. When deputies arrived to the scene, a tourniquet was used to help control the man’s bleeding. He was taken to UAB hospital where he is stable. After a tip, deputies later found Boozer on the railroad tracks on Reeds Mill Road. Deputies applied first aid until EMS arrived. Boozer was taken to a local hospital where he died.
