Frank Lambert, Camden, was shot in his home by an unknown suspect during the early a.m. hours of Thursday, July 6.
Although a home burglary/ robbery is now believed to be a possible motive, at least two shots were fired by one male suspect.
Both shots struck Frank Lambert, a local Camden business-owner. Lambert sustained injuries from the gunshots, and was left in need of medical attention as the suspect fled the scene.
Neighbors did not report seeing any ambulances arrive. One source close to the situation said Lambert drove himself to the hospital.
Frank Lambert was last being treated at UAB hospital.
