1 dead, 1 shot in domestic violence shooting

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - One person is dead and another person is in critical condition after a domestic violence related shooting.

Montgomery police officers responded to a domestic violence call in the 200 block of Townsend Drive Wednesday morning.

As officers arrived on the scene, a male subject pulled out a handgun and shot an unknown female three times in the upper torso.

The male, who has been identified as 26-year old Samuel Jones, then turned the gun on himself, firing a fatal shot into his chest.

The female victim was later transported to Baptist South and is now listed in stable condition.

Investigators believe that the shooting was the  result of a dating relationship that the victim and the suspect were engaged in.
