MADISON COUNTY (WAFF) -

Deputies are searching for the suspect in a Madison County shooting from Saturday morning.

Madison County Sheriff's Office reported around 7 a.m. that a shooting had happened in the area of Shields Road and Jordan Road.

The Madison County coroner has confirmed that this was a homicide and that the victim was female. Deputies are considering this case a murder investigation.

Deputies and crime scene investigators were at a home on the 1400 block of Jordan Road for most of the day. Authorities said the body of the victim was found in a bedroom inside the house, and that the woman's roommate witnessed the shooting and called for help.

Authorities have identified Scott Carter, 44, as a suspect in this case and consider him possibly armed and dangerous. Carter's last known address is in Jackson County, but deputies believe he may be in the Birmingham area.

One neighbor said she is shocked by the news of a murder so close to her home. She said she didn't hear or see anything strange last night, but she woke up this morning to find her street swarming with deputies.

Kimberly Bolding said, "I opened the door and it was chaos. There were police cars everywhere. It was roped off. I knew when it was taped off like that, it was something bad."

If you have any information in connection with this case, please contact deputies at 256-532-3417.
