No charges are expected to be charged against a Walker County homeowner who shot and killed an Alzheimer's patient he believed to be a prowler.
The incident in which 72-year-old Ronald Westbrook was killed happened early Wednesday morning at 188 College Crest Court.
Joe Hendrix, 34, said he fired four shots at the man after he would not respond and kept coming toward him. The victim is a former Air Force pilot, who had wandered off before.
The victim had walked over two miles from his house in the frigid cold after slipping off.
Mr. Westbrook at one time managed the LaFayette-Barwick
Airport. He attended church with
County Sheriff Steve Wilson, who held a press conference about the incident.
