MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Montgomery Police Department is investigating the city's 14th and 15th murders of 2009. The 14th homicide happened around 8pm Tuesday at a residence on Bassett Drive. Officers arrived on the scene to find a 19-year-old man lying on the ground. The victim, identified as Carliff Hudson of Mona Lisa Drive, had been shot twice in the back.

Hudson was rushed to Baptist South Emergency Room where he died a short time later. Investigators are looking for a specific suspect, but declined to release that person's name until a warrant had been signed.

15TH HOMICIDE

Just eight hours later at 4am Wednesday gunshots rang out on the W. South Boulevard. Investigators responded to the Peddlers Inn where they found two victims suffering from gunshot wounds.

Thirty-two year old Joel Warren of April Street was pronounced dead on the scene. The other victim was not named, but authorities said his wounds were non-life-threatening.

Investigators believe Warren and the other victim had been arguing with the shooter when the argument turned physical. Investigators said they have information on the shooter in this case but, again, would not release that person's name until a warrant was signed.

The two homicides were not known to be related, but Lt. Mark Drinkard did say that the murders did not appear to be a random acts.
