Autopsy pending in shooting death
The man accused in a shooting death could be facing more charges. Patrick A. McCall is already in the Alachua County Jail, charged with shooting Robert Matthew Judah last month. Judah died yesterday during a follow up surgery relating to the injuries he sustained in the shooting, and Alachua County Sheriff’s Office Sergeant Todd Kelly says that could mean more severe charges for McCall.
He says investigators were able to get significant testimony and information from Judah in the days before his death.
He says the State Attorney’s Office is also considering charges against McCall relating to other shots fired that day. Judah was shooting skeet outside the Forest Grove Baptist Church October 21. Law enforcement says McCall exited his home and randomly fired a handgun across the street in the direction of the church, hitting Judah. He is currently charged with Attempted Homicide.
