We are learning more about the suspect who allegedly shot Corporal Michael Walker Tuesday. Forrest Bullin, 37, was booked into Baldwin County jail on an attempted murder charge for allegedly shooting Corporal Walker after a domestic violence call. 

This isn't Bullin's first run-in with the law. During a news conference, Baldwin County District Attorney Bob Wilters said Bullin was currently out on bond for previous charges. 

"Mr. Bullin is currently out on bond for another charge, an assault charge, menacing charge, and I believe a theft charge. Those last two charges are misdemeanor charges are scheduled for trial on Friday, which may or may not happen at this time."

That assault charge as recent as September of 2016. Court records show Bullin assaulted a person with quote "brass knuckles and/or similar instrument." Jail records also show Bullin has a history of domestic violence. 

Wilters said, "He has a number of arrests on domestic charges, but no convictions." In 2012 and 2015, Bullin was charged five times with domestic violence. Two of those arrests within days of each other. 

He was also charged with violating a protection order in September of 2015. Since 2011 Bullin has faced multiple drug charges, resisting arrest, DUI, carrying a concealed weapon, and obstructing government operations. 

As for the domestic violence case that happened before the deputy-involved shooting, Wilters said an investigation will determine those charges.
