Two Men Arrested in Connection to Shooting of Alabama Missionary

Two men have been arrested after the nearly-fatal shooting of a Latter-day Saint missionary in Alabama.

On December 3, Elder Michael Fauber, 18, of Dayton, Ohio, was shot multiple times at a church gymnasium during a game of basketball. The attack was unprovoked and the assailant fled. The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, with help from the United States Marshal’s Service, has now identified and arrested Courtney Lee Knight (above left) for attempted murder. Cornelius Omar-James Knight (above right) has also been charged with hindering prosecution during the investigation of the case. Both are being held in the Jefferson County Jail on $60,000 and $15,000 bonds respectively.

Elder Fauber is currently recovering at UAB Hospital in Birmingham. He’s undergone three surgeries and has been able to have his breathing tube removed. “He’s not completely out of the woods yet, and doctors are hopeful that he’s going to have a good recovery,” David Fauber, Elder Fauber’s father, said in a statement.
