DALE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — No charges are expected in a Dale County shooting that happened earlier this week.

On Wednesday morning, an argument between two truck drivers concerning a parking space at 
a convenience store outside of Clayhatchee led to a shooting.

Dale County sheriff officials said they believe the shooting was an act of self-defense.

At the time of the shooting, a log truck driver who fired the gun was reportedly being tased by a fuel truck operator.

The fuel truck driver was shot twice in the neck with a .22 caliber handgun, but he’s expected to survive.

Despite no charges being filed, we were told the incident could later be presented to a Dale County grand jury.
