Man dead, girl wounded in Prattville shooting


Prattville Police say they're working a death investigation after being called to a home just after midnight. Police were dispatched to a mobile home at 1346 Hwy 14 West on reports that someone had broken into the residence.

Upon arrival, officers found a 17-year-old girl suffering from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Inside the home they found a 49-year-old man with a gunshot wound to the head.

The girl, unidentified, was transported to Baptist South in Montgomery where she is listed in stable condition. The man, identified as Freddie L. Cook, of Prattville, was pronounced dead on the scene.

WSFA 12 News spoke with the victim's grandmother. She said the situation started when Cook, her daughter's ex-boyfriend, came to the house with a gun. The grandmother said Cook shot at her daughter, but the granddaughter jumped in front of the bullet.

An investigation into the shooting continues. WSFA 12 News will have more information as it becomes available.
