The Montgomery Police Department is investigating the city's 25th homicide this year following the shooting death Thursday night of 24-year-old Courtney Lawery.

Lawery's death is Montgomery's 25th homicide of 2013.  No additional information is available for release relative to this ongoing investigation.
