On 8-24-14 at approximately 0345 hrs. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call from a newspaper delivery person on Little Dothan Rd. in the northeast portion of Jackson County.
The caller reported three persons yelling for help from the second floor of a residence. The individuals stated that they had been shot at and held hostage for several hours. When the officers arrived the subjects initially refused to come outside because they feared the attackers might still be in the bottom floor of the house.
Once contact was made, the two men and one woman reported that they had been attacked by several persons but could not provide any descriptions. The female reported that she had been stabbed and the knife broken off in her abdomen. Further investigation revealed that she only had a superficial scratch to her abdomen. Furthermore, all of the injuries received by the individuals were self-inflicted while attempting to fight off the attackers.
The investigation revealed that there was never anyone at the home beside the three individuals and no one was attempting to cause them harm.
The remnants of a “Shake and Bake” meth lab was found in the residence along with several ingredients and items used to manufacture methamphetamines. Also discovered was a small amount of finished methamphetamine product along with straws and pipes used to ingest, inhale, or smoke illegal narcotics.
It appears in their altered mental state, the subjects were hallucinating and believed that they were being attacked. The three armed themselves with a 12-gauge shotgun and a .22 rifle. Approximately 40 rounds of 12-guage and an unknown number of .22 rounds were fired from inside the residence.
Numerous windows were shot out and holes were shot in the walls. They completely removed a large rear window from the house on the second floor and threw the bathroom sink at the imaginary attackers. Chunks of sheetrock, wood, firearm parts, and anything they could tear out of the residence was thrown outside including the toilet, which was ripped from the floor. In total, more than $10,000 damage was done to the residence.
All three of the subjects were lodged in the Jackson County Correctional Facility to await first appearance.
