Stepfather Shoots Man In Knee With Shotgun

A Tyler man was shot by his stepfather at a Quitman residence after an altercation broke out between them Tuesday morning.

Police arrived at a home on the 400 block of Main Street at about 10:35 a.m. to find Michael Eugene Bruney, 42, suffering a gunshot wound to the left knee, said Sergeant Wes Criddle, Quitman Police Department.

Criddle said police determined his stepfather, a Quitman resident, shot Bruney with a 12-gauge shotgun after the two men had a disagreement.

Bruney was flown by helicopter to a Tyler hospital for treatment. Neither East Texas Medical Center at Tyler nor Mother Frances Hospital showed record of Bruney on Wednesday afternoon.

Criddle said the stepfather, whose name is not being released, was not arrested.

The case is under investigation and will be sent to a grand jury hearing in Quitman, he said.
