Deadly shooting at the Woodmere at the Lake apartments

MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Investigators on the scene of a homicide in the capital city Thursday night say an argument between two couples led to a deadly shooting.

The sound of a gun rang out at the Woodmere at the Lake apartments near the Alabama Shakespeare Festival center on Stonehenge Road Thursday afternoon. Police say they found a 26-year-old man dead in the parking lot.

MPD spokesman Captain Ron Cook said a couple drove up in a vehicle that had been involved in an argument. Cook said the couple then got involved in an argument with another couple.

The officer said two men got into an altercation, and one of their girlfriends went and got a gun. When she returned, Cook said, she pointed it at the other man's girlfriend. When the man tried to stop her from pointing the weapon, she turned and fired the weapon at him one time - killing him.

Officers took two people into custody, though they have not released any names.
