Troy shooting victim remains in critical condition

TROY, AL (WSFA) - The victim in a Thursday night shooting in Troy remains in critical condition at a Montgomery hospital Monday.

Meanwhile, Troy police continue to piece together the events that caused the shooting, but have not yet made an arrest.

The shooting happened on County Road 5513 in Banks at 9:30 p.m. Thursday.

The victim's family says they're not getting answers about what exactly happened.

"I went to the door and I knew something was wrong," said Judy McGinnis, the victim's mother. "I asked them was my son ok and they said he's alive at the moment."

McGinnis told WSFA 12 News that her son Michael Long was shot by his father-in-law Thursday night at Long's home. She said her son had a gunshot wound to the chest and had to have emergency surgery at Baptist South in Montgomery.

Police are not releasing many details about the incident, and that has family members upset.

"When I've got a son in there fighting for his life, you know, I want some answers our family wants answers," McGinnis said.

All police will say is there was an domestic incident at the home between a 35 year old man -presumed to be Long and a 34 year old woman . Police say later a 61 year old man shot long with a handgun.

"I'm having to piece things together because I don't know," McGinnis said.  "If they would tell us something to give some type of closure so we could deal with what's going on."

Troy Police said they are not releasing the identities of those involved in this case, because the investigation is ongoing.  Police referred any additional comment to the 12th Circuit District Attorney Tom Anderson.  Anderson could not be reached for comment.
