BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

A Heflin police officer who was shot and wounded in the line of duty had more surgery today.

Officer Jackie Stovall was shot just after a chase in Oxford. He was stopping a shooting rampage that left three people dead just outside Heflin.

The shooter, Romero Moya, later died after Oxford police opened fire on him. Stovall has been in and out of the hospital ever since.

Chief AJ Benefield says Stovall had been out of the hospital and was watching his son play baseball when a doctor called him back for more surgery.

Benefield says Stovall went into surgery just a couple of hours ago at a Birmingham hospital.

    I’m tracking cloudy skies to the east of I-65 and mostly sunny skies to the west of I-65. This is impacting temperatures already and will result in highs in the middle 70s west and upper 60s east. I do expect thinning clouds this afternoon from west to east.
