Small fire at Incinerator halts operations
Employees at the Anniston Chemical Agent Disposal

Parolee being charged in shooting of teen
A man suspected of shooting a 17-year-old boy in
the neck on Monday has been returned to a state prison, according to
St. Clair County Chief Deputy Gary Cone. 52 year old Johnny Ray Cox,
has not been charged with a crime in the incident. However, he was on
parole for a manslaughter conviction several years ago, Cone. Once it
was determined he had not reported to his probation officer and was in
violation of parole, he was transported to Kilby Prison.
Cone said that Cox is expected to face charges in the shooting of the
17-year-old. The 17-year-old, whose identity was not released, was in
a vehicle with his father when they stopped on the side of the road in
the Greensport area to look at deer crossing the road. A man who
lives near where the father and son stopped had words with them and
allegedly fired the shot that struck the teen. The father drove his
son to the Rainbow City Fire Department, where he was then taken by
ambulance to Gadsden Regional Medical Center. He since has been
transferred to University Hospital in Birmingham.
