Man arrested in connection to 2012 shooting

— Athens Police arrested a man Wednesday for a shooting incident that occurred more than a year ago.

Police charged Thurman Antonio Jordan, 37, of 701 Hal St., Huntsville, with first-degree assault in connection to the shooting that occurred on the night of June 17, 2012, on West Washington Street.

Police said three shots were fired in the incident, one of which struck a man in the leg. Several witnesses who were in the home at the time of the incident identified Jordan as the gunman, police said.

After being booked at the Athens Police Department, Jordan was transferred to the Limestone County Jail. He was still in jail Thursday on $10,000 bond.
