Julio Jones' Brother shot in Gulf Shores, loses arm.

Regardless of our hate for the Falcons, this is sad, these kids and his family grew up in my neck of the woods. He was shot in Gulf Shores and lost his arm.


Report: Julio Jonesí brother loses arm in shooting | ProFootballTalk

For the second time in as many weeks, the Falcons are dealing with tragic news to family members.

According to FOX 10 in Alabama, Phillip Jones, the brother of Falcons star Julio Jones, was shot in an incident in Gulf Shores.

The 31-year-old Jones was flown to a hospital in Pensacola, Fla., and lost his arm because of damage from the gunshot wound.

The Gulf Shores Police Department arrested 53-year-old George Bennett Sutton for a felony count of assault in the first degree, though the investigation continues.

I didn't believe it until it I read the article from AJC. I am praying for his family. First Roddy and now Julio. This is horrible.

Re: Julio Jones' Brother shot in Gulf Shores, loses arm.

Curious as to what is going on that gets a person shot with a shotgun at close range?

Not like you can tote that in your t-shirt pocket in the summer and for enough damage to cause the loss of an arm... This was far enough to have a barrel between them but close enough for the shot pattern to have not spread very much.

I have no idea what his brother was like. He may have been a gang banger or just in the wrong place at the wrong time.

There is a pretty bad gang problem in Foley (adjacent to Gulf Shores) but it would be unfair to speculate that it was an issue in the shooting.

No speculation here, just the nature of the incident leaves me with questions. For all we know the old man broke into his house, but it didn't happen at a gun range and it wasn't a cleaning accident.

I know getting shot with a shotgun at close enough range to result in an felony arrest and loss of limb doesn't happen every day with out at least one of them being where they shouldn't have been.

George Bennett Sutton (53) was arrested on Felony First Degree Assault charges. It is a Class B felony but requires intent and some degree of indifference to humanity.

Rumor has it Jones was arguing with the man's wife in the man's house, presumably about drugs, and the man grabbed his gun and shot him.

But that's just the rumor de jur.

I can tell you that keeping a limb when shot from close range with a shotgun is very hard to do. I know.
