Killed – Louis Lamar McMillan (Mobile, AL)

Louis Lamar McMillan

MOBILE, Alabama — A 28-year-old man was killed early Monday morning during a “reckless” shooting on Hillcrest Road, a Mobile Police Department spokesman said.

Louis Lamar McMillian, 28, was pronounced dead by members of the Mobile Fire-Rescue Department after officials were called to the 1600 block of Hillcrest Road around 12:15 a.m. Monday, said MPD spokesman Cpl. Christopher Levy.

That same day Candis Tinay Barren, 27, was booked into Mobile County Metro Jail just after 8 a.m. She is facing one count of manslaughter in the shooting.

Detectives determined Barren had killed McMillian “while handling the weapon [a gun] in a reckless manner,” Levy said.

It does not appear the shooting was intentional, which appears to be why Barren was charged with manslaughter as opposed to murder.

Murder/Suicide – Killed – David Eugene Abney (Cullman, AL)

David Eugene Abney

CULLMAN, Ala. (WHNT) – Police have identified the two men who died in an apparent murder-suicide.

It happened just after 8:00 p.m. Monday in the 1400 block of 3rd Street SW, which is about a block from West Elementary School in Cullman. Police say David Eugene Abney, 42, of Cullman was found shot to death in the front yard of the home. The man suspected of shooting him was Terry Glen Bailey, 54, of Cullman.

“They had been friends at one time and it had developed into some kind of feud and it even reached a physical point back in December,” said Police Chief Kenny Culpepper. “There had been a physical fight to which we were called.”

Police say neither of the men involved lived at the home on 3rd Street SW. Police say Abney was apparently visiting a woman and child who lived there. It appears Bailey pulled up to the home and shot Abney at least four times and then turned the gun on himself.

Police say they found Bailey in his car. He was taken to Cullman Regional Medical Center where doctors pronounced him dead.

David Eugene Abney, 42, and Terry Glen Bailey, 54, both died Monday night after they were found with gunshot wounds around 9:30 p.m. in the 1400 block of 3rd Street Southwest in Cullman, the newspaper reported. Abney was found dead of gunshot wounds to the head and chest. His death was ruled a homicide.

Upon arrival, they located Christopher Lewis, age 19, of Montgomery, who had sustained a gunshot wound. Lewis was transported to Baptist Medical Center South and was later pronounced dead.

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — The Montgomery Police Department has charged two juvenile suspects in the city’s 37th homicide of 2013.

Murphy said the suspects met the victim over the internet, and the fatal shooting occurred in the commission of an armed robbery.

He said the suspects met with the victim with the intention of robbing him. Both of the juveniles were armed with handguns.

The suspects’ names are not being released due to their juvenile status, and because of their ages few details in the homicides were released. The 15-year-old could be charged as an adult.

Killed – Willie Brown (Gadsden, AL)

A Gadsden man was shot to death shortly after midnight Wednesday as he was getting into his car – making it the third homicide in Gadsden in less than a week.

GADSDEN, Alabama — A man was shot to death in East Gadsden early this morning as he got into his car.

Deputy Coroner Michael Head said Willie Brown, 45, was shot at a home at 1220 Kentucky Avenue. Authorities were called at 12:38 a.m. Brown was pronounced dead at the scene.

The wounds appear to have come from an AK-47, much like the shooting that occurred Saturday on the Meighan Boulevard Bridge. 53-year-old Billy Baker and 35-year-old Jobari Player, both of Gadsden, died when their car was hit by bullets that appeared to come from an AK-47, fired from another car.
