HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

The lawyer for a man shot by a former Morgan County Deputy at a Huntsville Wal-Mart said he's trying to view the security footage before he files a suit. The former deputy resigned days after the shooting.

The attorney said he's doing his own investigation into the shooting, and is still waiting to receive documents from the Morgan County Sheriff's Office about the incident.

Tommy James said he's working to determine whether former Morgan County Deputy Brian Fulford fired his own weapon at James' client David Horton. Horton took off when the former deputy started chasing him through the Huntsville Wal-Mart.

Horton's attorney said he's planning on filing suit against the Morgan County Sheriff's Office and the former deputy. The attorney said once he files the suit, he'd like to settle out of court, but is prepared to go to trial.
