Shooting victim in serious condition

An Ardmore man shot three times on Friday was upgraded from critical to serious condition, a Huntsville Hospital official said.

Eric Alan Hinton, 28, remained in the surgical intensive care unit Sunday night.

He was shot under his arm and stomach with a .25-caliber pistol after an argument, in which some witnesses said Hinton struck his alleged shooter, Vascar “Thad” Barnett, 39, in the side of the head with a fiberglass handle.

Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely said he will let a grand jury decide whether to prosecute Barnett.
