One man was in the hospital Wednesday night from a shooting in Decatur, but he is expected to survive. 


It happened around 5 p.m. on Dodd Drive.

About two and a half hours after the original shooting the Decatur Police Department performed a search warrant on a house along Dodd Dr.

WAAY 31 saw two men in hand cuffs being put into the back of a squad car.

Right now, the police are not confirming whether or not the two men are connected in any way to the shooting.

Police are also not saying whether or not the search warrant they served is related to the shooting.

WAAY 31 talked to several people who live along the street who said they saw a man on a bicycle weaving back and forth down the street while being shot at, but that information is not confirmed by police at this time.
