In November 2015, a Phil Campbell man argued with his girlfriend at the residence they shared on Smith Road. This in itself was no crime, but when the girlfriend’s sons came to the aid of their mother, now 48 year old Brian Keith Fuller retrieved a shotgun and fired, striking the 23 year old in both legs. In January 2016, a Franklin County grand jury indicted Fuller on charges of:
First Degree Assault
Third Degree Domestic Violence
When Fuller failed to appear on the three charges, he became a wanted man – at least he was until yesterday when he was captured. Fuller remains in the Franklin County Detention Center as of Wednesday morning.
Editor’s note: If anyone compiles a book of humorous incident reports, this shooting should be included. The deputy noted that the son was shot in the “front left leg and front right leg.” Unless the son had hind legs to go with the two in front, the word he was looking for was “anterior.”
