The brother of Falcons player Julio Jones was shot in Alabama.

Police in Gulf Shores, AL were called to an urgent care center Tuesday at about 7:30 p.m. to respond to a man being brought in with a gunshot wound.

They say Phillip Columbus Jones was shot at a home.

Jones was taken from the urgent care center to the South Baldwin Regional Medical Center. He then was taken by medical helicopter to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, FL.

Police have arrested and charged George Bennett Sutton, 53, of Gulf Shores with the shooting. Sutton is currently being held at the Gulf Shores Police Detention Center and is charged with first-degree assault.

It was less than two weeks ago that Falcons star Roddy White's brother was shot and killed in South Carolina.
