MCSO: Teen Made Threats, Shot by Neighbor

MCSO: Teen Made Threats, Shot by Neighbor

Posted: Updated:
WILMER, Ala. - Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputies responded to a shooting on the 11000 block of Timberland Drive North in Wilmer, Ala. Wednesday night.

Authorities arrived to find 18-year-old Mason Jordan shot. He went to the hospital for treatment. Jordan received surgery for his injuries and is listed in serious condition.

Witnesses said Jordan entered a residence, fought with his brother and threatened to hit him with a bat. Jordan became volatile and his threats turned to other family members who lived in the residence. Jordan said he would use a knife to kill everyone including himself.

A family member fled the residence and went to a neighbor for help. The neighbor returned to the scene and fired a warning shot. The warning did not deter Mason, so the neighbor shot him.

Mason Jordan is no stranger to law enforcement. Before Wednesday’s incident Mason had two misdemeanor warrants for criminal mischief and harassment.
