Man Charged with Attempted Murder of Family

Authorities say Dustin Louis Mansell attempted to shoot five members of his family Saturday night. The 38 year old Mansell was stated to be in a drug induced rage when he shot at his wife and four children through a glass door. No one was injured in the shooting.

Mansell, who works at Tiffin Motor Homes in Red Bay, is a graduate of Colbert County High School and from the White Oaks community originally.  He now lives with his family on a Vina postal route. Mansell remains in the Franklin County Detention Center as of Monday afternoon.
