Yeah he only shot him in the leg so he wouldn't get away. You find out in season 4 that if a shifter kills another shifter he can turn into that person.
Season 4 starts a year after season 3 ends because sookie goes missing during that time. The best part of season 4 is they drop the fairy storyline after the first episode.
