19-year-old dies after accidental shooting in Dothan
DOTHAN, AL (WSFA) - A Dothan man died Sunday morning after an accidental shooting Saturday.
According to the Dothan Police Department, Christian Mullins, 19, died from a gunshot wound to the stomach. Originally, police were called to the scene in the 2100 block of Baker Trace on a report of a firearm assault by an unknown assailant.
However, officers determined that wasn't true, and DPD says they learned Mullins was accidentally shot by his friend, 20-year-old Fisher Shipes. Shipes was taken to the department for questioning before he was arrested for filing a false police report and an unrelated warrant.
Mullins was taken to a hospital and was listed as in critical condition, but just after midnight he died.
The investigation is ongoing and police say more charges may be filed.
