The 76-year-old man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for a shotgun blast that blinded his brother


The 76-year-old Shelby County man was sentenced to 25 years in prison for the 2017 shooting that left him permanently blind in the face with a shotgun blast.

Circuit Judge Laura Alvis sentenced Hollis Lang. “We have two wolves – a good wolf and an evil wolf,” Alvis said at the time of sentencing. “The wolf that wins the most is the one that feeds the most.”

The shooting happened on Jan. 6, 2017, in the 4000 block of Shelby County. Hollis Lang was arrested two days later.

His brother Jerry Lang was permanently blinded by the shooting.

After a five-day trial, in November 2020, Hullis Lang was convicted of attempted murder.

Assistant District Attorneys Greg Lowery and Shawn Styers stand with the victims and their families and announce Alvis’s sentence.

“It was a sad case of a family member that couldn’t get along with anyone and eventually pulled the trigger against his own brother,” Styers said.

“We are delighted to have this dangerous offender on the streets of Shelby County,” District Attorney Jill Lee said.
