NO fewer than four people were killed after a gunman allegedly opened fire at two homes in Alabama.
The suspect, 28, is accused of fatally shooting two people in a Birmingham home before killing two more in a nearby suburb, according to police.
Stonix News gathered that around midnight on Tuesday, St. Clair County deputies responded to a distress call in a Ragland home, Birmingham, where they found a woman dead in the driveway and a man suffering from a gunshot wound inside.
As contained in the Sheriff’s Office statement, the man was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he died.
The victims have been identified as Timothy Davidson, 62, and 37-year-old Amber Manning.
Few hours later, during investigations, operatives of St. Clair County arrested the suspect, Daniel Watson, of Pell City.
Stonix News can confirm that Watson allegedly admitted to the arresting officers that he had also shot two people in Birmingham.
In a video statement, spokesman for the Birmingham Police Department, Truman Fitzgerald said:
“We believe the suspect shot two victims in Birmingham, before traveling into St. Clair County and shooting two additional victims in their jurisdiction.
“We do believe the suspect knows at least some of the victims.”
Fitzgerald also added that Watson is expected to face capital murder charges in Jefferson County, which as well includes Birmingham.
