CORNER, Ala. (WIAT) — Floyd Daniel Alexander, 50, was arrested on October 17 after being released from the hospital on an Attempted Murder charge, according to a release by the Sheriff’s Office.
According to the release, Alexander reportedly drove to his ex-girlfriend’s home on the 2600 block of Blake Way near Corner as she sat outside with her new boyfriend. Alexander then reportedly got out of his car with a gun demanding to know who the other man was before he fired a shot that did not strike anyone.
The new boyfriend then reportedly fired a shot of his own that struck Alexander in the abdomen. Deputies received a call just after 9:30 p.m. on Saturday and drove to the home to investigate reports of a shooting.
When they arrived, they found Alexander lying in the driveway suffering from a gunshot wound, and he was transported to an area hospital with life-threatening injuries.
Detectives arrested Alexander upon his release from the hospital, and he was transferred to Jefferson County Jail where he remains on a $100,000 bond.
The department is also pursuing a stalking charge related to evidence in the case.
