Morgan man shot by father-in-law, sheriff says

The estranged husband of a northeast Morgan County woman was shot before dawn Wednesday by his father-in-law, Sheriff Greg Bartlett said.

Calvin Hann of Lacey's Spring was wounded by a shotgun blast that struck him in the stomach, Bartlett said.

The shot was fired by James Griffin, 60, of Criscoe Road during an argument between his daughter, Chrissy Hann, 30, also of Criscoe Road, and her husband, Calvin Hann, 30.

Griffin, who lives near his daughter, went to her house before 5 a.m. when he was told Calvin Hann was there. He carried a shotgun.

Bartlett said Calvin Hann, 30, fired a shotgun but didn't hit anyone. Griffin then fired his shotgun, striking Calvin Hann in the stomach, Bartlett said.

Hann was taken to Huntsville Hospital and following surgery was reported to be in a critical but stable condition.

Bartlett said Calvin Hann is under a court order to stay away from his wife's residence.

The sheriff said Calvin Hann was in violation of a protection from abuse court order.

No charges are expected to be filed against Griffin, Bartlett said.
