Suspect in custody after Auburn shooting


One man is dead and the suspected shooter is in custody at East Alabama Medical Center after a shooting on Lee Road 17 Monday night, according to Auburn police.

Auburn assistant police chief Tommy Dawson said officers were called to a residence on Lee Road 17 off South College Street at 7:54 p.m. in reference to a possible shooting. Dawson said officers found a 32-year-old Auburn man in the kitchen of his home, dead from an apparent gunshot wound. They located the alleged suspect, a 20-year-old Auburn man, next door with a gunshot wound to his arm.
 
He was arrested and transported to EAMC for treatment, he said.
Dawson would not release the name of the victim or the suspect until investigators knew more about the incident. He anticipated to have more details available Tuesday.

The shooting marks Auburn's first homicide of 2010. Opelika had its first homicide of the year on April 5 after Demetrius Shorter, 18, allegedly shot Montavious Lamar Moore, 21, of Opelika in the 200 block of Chester Avenue. Shorter has been charged with murder in that case.
Auburn investigators remained on the scene of Monday's shooting late into the night. Dawson said the motive is unknown, but was likely the result of "some type of argument."
