Authorities say a Florence man has been charged in the shooting death of a Madison County resident. The shooter, whom the Madison County Sheriff’s Office identified as 44 year old Sammie Lee Driskell, was visiting in a Madison home when the victim, Christopher Hamlett, arrived. An argument ensued, and Driskell shot the 21 year old Hamlett multiple times in the face. Hamlett, a youth minister, was also robbed of the cash he was carrying. Driskell is currently in the Madison County Jail with bail set at 50K. Sources say Driskell, who resides in Courtview Towers, had lived in the Huntsville area until 2013.
