A call of shots fired came into 911 at 10:05 p.m. There was an altercation that took place between Waggoner, who was with his son, and the victim, 46-year-old Michael Adam Woodby. That is when Waggoner shot Woodby, the TBI said.

Waggoner has been booked into the Union County Jail on $250,000 bond.
