HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Huntsville police say a Morgan County deputy has been charged with second-degree assault in connection with a shooting at a Huntsville Wal-Mart.

Police say Deputy Brian Fulford was off duty Tuesday and shopping at a Wal-Mart when he spotted David Horton. Horton was wanted on a felony charge in connection with a burglary in Morgan County. Horton ran from the store and sustained a minor gunshot wound when being apprehended.

Morgan County Sheriff Ana Franklin says Fulford turned himself in Friday and was released on bond. She says he is on non-paid administrative leave pending a meeting Monday at the sheriff’s office.
