Around 5:45 Saturday night a shooting on Wakulla Springs Road was reported to the Leon County Sheriff's Office.

Witnesses told deputies they saw 44-year-old Alvin Sharp fire at 27-year-old Kevin Ratliff several times. Deputies say Sharp then fled the area on foot.

"So we brought out several units, set up a perimeter, brought out the helicopter, K-9 units and after a search, one of our units saw a man on the side of the road," explained LT Rory Robbins.

That man on Oakridge Road was suspect Sharp, who turned himself in to the deputy. The victim was taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital and is listed in stable condition.
