The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is investigating an alleged shooting from Sunday night.

Deputy Scott Hunt said he went to Bowater Road around 6 p.m. and talked with Tammy Stamey, who told him her husband had come to the house and started arguing with her about signing over a truck title to him.

Another person at the house, Christopher Mills, told Stamey to leave and they started arguing. A neighbor, Alan Hart, heard the argument and came over to see what was going on, Hunt was told.

At this point, William Stamey allegedly grabbed a shovel out of his truck and "came at" Hart, Hunt said. Mills, who was on the porch by this time, grabbed a 30.06 rifle and fired two shots at Stamey's feet to keep him from hitting Hart with the shovel, according to Hunt.
