Several rumors pertaining to audible gunshots fired in the Miller’s Ferry area have now been validated, courtesy of Social Media, web-based vengeance, and oversharing.
According to his recent status update on Facebook, a man from Thomasville named Chris Barnes was “shot 3 times last night about 2:45 (a.m.)” by his suspected girlfriend/ “a crazy B++++”, who has since been identified as an Alabama Southern Community College student named Mariah Green, of Pine Hill.
Green was arrested promptly after the incident. However, what she’s been charged for and whether or not she’s made bail is unknown at this present time. Anonymous witnesses claim that Green and Barnes’ relationship had grown increasingly combative leading up to the shooting. Mariah Green has threatened to shoot Barnes before, sources say.
Officers were reportedly spotted on the island collecting evidence at Miller’s Ferry. The extent of Barnes’ injuries include shots through his nasal cavity, shoulder, and arm.
and although nothing official has been released from coroners, law enforcement, or family members it is believed that Barnes was alive when he made the Facebook post.
