A family fight escalated so much that an 18-year-old is in the hospital listed in serious condition.
On Jan. 15 the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office received a call in reference to a domestic complaint in the 1100 block of North Timberland Drive. When deputies arrived on the scene, they found Mason Jordan, 18, had been shot.
He was transported to a local hospital and immediately went into surgery. As of the morning of Jan. 16, he is listed in serious condition, according to MCSO.
According to a press release from the MCSO, witnesses at the scene said Jordan entered the residence, began fighting with his brother and threatened to hit him with a bat.
The fight escalated and Mason also began threatening his grandparents as well as other family members who live at the residence.
“Mason also armed himself with a knife and threatened to kill everyone including himself,” states the MCSO press release. “One family member was able to escape to a neighbor’s house. The neighbor went to the residence to assist with a pistol and fired a warning shot. When threatening behavior continued he fired another striking Mason Jordan.”
The 18-year-old had active misdemeanor warrants out for him —one criminal mischief and one for harassment.
The MCSO is still investigating the shooting.
