No suspects Yet In City's 5th Murder Of The Year

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

All is quiet now but early Monday morning in the 5900 block of Oakleigh Road, 20-year old Xavier Means died, shot twice and Montgomery Police say they don't have a motive right now.

"We don't know if it was random or not. We'll still looking into it," said Major Huey Thornton.

WSFA 12 News has learned Means was sitting in his 2001 Cadillac Deville with two acquaintances around 12:20 Monday morning.

Witnesses tell investigators two men walked up with one of them shooting Means. He died about an hour later at Baptist South.

After the shooting, the suspects fled in Means' car.

January is turning out to be a deadly month but that's not necessarily an indicator for the remainder of the year.

"We've gone months without a homicide," said Major Huey Thornton.

Of the 5 homicides this year, police have made arrests in two of the 5. So far no one's been arrested in this latest murder.

Montgomery police say the car they're looking for has tag number 3-A-3-4-6-0-1.

The city by the way ended 2009 with 31 murders, one short of its average for the last few years.
