Police have arrested the man accused of shooting the brother of Atlanta Falcons star receiver Julio Jones.
 
George Bennett Sutton faces first degree assault charges for shooting Phillip Jones Tuesday night in Gulf Shores.

Sources tell News 5 Phillip Jones was shot in the arm -- possibly with a shotgun -- at a house on Yupon Drive and had to have the arm removed. Jones was initially taken to a local urgent care facility but then airlifted to another hospital. His condition is unknown at this time.
 
Phillip Jones is the older brother to Julio Jones, a Foley native who was a standout football player for the Alabama Crimson Tide. The Pro Bowler has played three professional seasons since being drafted with the sixth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft.
