Shootout left one person critically injured

An argument between a Cottondale woman and her estranged husband resulted in a shootout Saturday night.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call around 11:40 p.m. from Paul Barber Jr., 52, stating that a man and a woman had been shot at his home, located in the 3400 block of Omaha Trail in Cottondale just west of Marianna. When deputies arrived, the front door had been kicked open and Julian Shiver, 44, and Felisia Shiver, 45, were lying on the floor.

According to reports, Felisia Shiver was visiting Barber when her estranged husband arrived. He wasn’t let in so and (sic) he allegedly kicked the front door open. The confrontation grew into an argument where Julian Shiver pulled out a handgun and shot Felisia Shiver at least once in the head.

Maj. John Dennis said Barber pulled out a shotgun and the two men exchanged gunfire. Reports said Barber struck Julian Shiver twice in the torso.

Both Julian and Felisia Shiver were taken to Flowers Hospital in Dothan, Ala., and have undergone surgery. Dennis said Julian Shiver is in stable condition, and Felisia Shiver is in critical condition.

As of now, Julian Shiver could faces charges of attempted murder and armed burglary.

“He hasn’t been arrested at this time. We’re waiting to find out his condition,”
