Bizarre Shooting In Jackson County

An Escatawpa man just released from jail is in police custody again, after being shot in the chest. Authorites say it all stemmed from a domestic dispute between the man and his ex-wife. Authorities say 35 year old Stacy Martin kidnapped his ex-wife early this morning in Grand Bay Alabama. They say Martin forced his way into Tandra Dickerson's car as she was leaving her home for work, then started driving toward Mississippi.

Several times on the ride over, Jackson County Sheriff's Deputies say Martin threatened to kill his ex-wife. At the boat ramp off of Bayou Herron Road in Jackson County, the woman pulled a handgun from her purse and shot Martin in the chest. Authorities say Dickerson drove her ex-husband to Singing River Hospital. Tonight, he's in serious condition.

Authorities say charges will be filed against him in Mobile County, but they haven't said what those charges will be. 30 year old Tandra Dickerson was not hurt, and Jackson County authorities say no charges are being filed against her.
