CHIPLEY — A Cottondale man was arrested after a Holmes County man was in the foot, according to a report from the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

David Ellis Mabry, 23, of Cottondale was arrested in connection with charges of aggravated battery with a firearm and shooting a firearm from a vehicle. The arrests stemmed from an Aug. 17 report of a shooting at a residence on Gilbert’s Mill Road.

The shooting occurred in the early morning hours of Aug. 17 after Mabry received a call from his brother, who was attending a party at the Gilbert’s Mill Road residence.

Mabry went to the residence where the party was being held.  When Mabry arrived at the residence, he observed two male subjects approaching his vehicle then fired several shots into the air as well as at the ground from the driver’s side of his vehicle, according to the report. 

Mabry then left in his vehicle, stopping a short distance down the road. Mabry said he was followed by a vehicle, so Mabry exited his vehicle and fired approximately seven rounds with a SKS assault rifle into the vehicle. 

Cody Alan Corbin, who was driving the vehicle Mabry fired his weapon into, was struck in the foot. 

EMS arrived at the scene and Corbin refused to be taken to the hospital.
