HARVEST, AL (WAFF) -

A shooting in Madison County left one person in serious condition late Friday night.

Deputies said the call came in at 11:30 p.m. When deputies arrived on Wethersfield Drive in Harvest, they said they found a man lying in a yard, shot in his stomach.

Deputies said the victim, Sturgeon Coleman, and his wife had a domestic dispute. They said she ran to the neighbor's house for help and asked for someone to dial 911. According to deputies, Kortex Sanford instead went to the residence, got into a confrontation with Coleman, and then shot him.

"When I heard the shots, I looked out my garage door and saw people scurrying around, and heard the young lady say 'My husband has been shot,'" said Kenneth Phillips, a neighbor.

Coleman was taken to Huntsville Hospital in serious condition, but has since been listed as being in stable condition.

Sanford was charged with first-degree assault and is being held on bond in Madison County Jail on a $5,000 bond.

Deputies said it wasn't the first time they've had to respond to the neighborhood. "We've been out here a lot, you know?" said Sergeant Brent Patterson. "Over the last few weeks and of course our deputies, we are patrolling the areas frequently out here so we are being seen more frequent in this particular area, but the crime is still here."
