Mosses Police investigate double shooting

Posted by Cody Holyoke - bio | email

MOSSES, AL (WSFA) Several law enforcement agencies are trying to apprehend the person or people responsible for a double shooting in Lowndes County.

It happened early Wednesday morning along Mulberry Street in Mosses, during what police say was a robbery attempt.

Family members and authorities say someone tried to rob a houseful of people at a home on Mulberry Street.  During the robbery police say the suspect(s) shot a boy, 16, in the arm and a man, 34, in the face.

Neighbors don't know what to think.

"I feel very terrified. I would never think something like that in my life would happen," said Tatiana Coleman, a cousin of the victims.

Mosses Mayor Walter Hill is watching the situation closely, surprised by the small town terror.

"It's not something that we're accustomed to, but certainly not something we want to get used to," Hill explained.

Hill tells WSFA 12 News the teen is recovering, but the man--in critical condition--has a long way to go.

"He is presently at Baptist South hospital on a ventilator, which he's depending heavily upon to remain alive," Hill explained Wednesday night.

Authorities say the criminals got away with some money.  So far, police have made no arrests, but investigators are questioning a person of interest.

Meanwhile, family members hope for the best and pray this never happens again.

"I'm so scared right now. I'm still scared, because they're my family, and I'm scared [the criminal(s)] might come back.  I don't know. Just very scared," Coleman said.

If you have any information that could help investigators crack the case, call the Mosses Police Department at (334) 563-9141.
