An Athens man is charged with receiving stolen property after Decatur Police say he used a stolen firearm to shoot a man.

Ronney Facison, 51, was taken to the Morgan County Correctional Facility and booked with a $2,500 bond, police said.

Officers responded about 3:30 p.m. Sunday to a report of a shooting at the Marathon gas station in the 2,900 block of Highway 31. They found a victim suffering from a gunshot wound, who was taken to Huntsville Hospital and treated and released.

Facison was detained as a suspect, and police said it was determined the firearm used in the shooting was reported stolen through the Huntsville Police Department.

Decatur police said the shooting occurred “after a dispute involving a personal relationship.”
