Montgomery man's home victim to multiple shootings over past month

Posted: Updated:
MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

A Montgomery man lives in constant fear after nearly two dozen shots have been fired at his home in just over a month.

Retired navy vet Malo Feaster, who is the neighborhood captain and is known as the "grandpa of Cotton Court", says that someone is trying to kill him.

The 75-year-old veteran has been living at this home for 13 years. He says for the last six weeks, gunshots have been ringing through his bedroom.

According to Feaster, the first shooting was on May 18, at 4:30 a.m., when three shots were fired at his home.

The next shooting occurred on May 23, at 1:30 a.m., and again three shots were fired.

On May 27, three shots were again fired at his house at 2:35 a.m.

Then on May 31, at 3:30 a.m., two shots were fired at Feaster's home.

On June 8, three more shots were fired at 2:30 a.m.

Then again, three more shots hit his home on June 12 at 2:10 a.m.

The last incident occurred at 2:45 a.m. on June 24, where one shot was fired.

Bullet holes in his bed, on the wall and dozens of rounds in his window.

 

Mr. Feaster says he used to open his doors to anyone because he was the Candy man in the neighborhood. But he recalls a time about two months ago when he says a group of boys tried to force their way into his home. He says he convinced them to leave, and he now believes they are retaliating against him.

"I think those guys wanted to come in and rob me, and I wouldn't let them and shortly after that the shooting started," Feaster said.

Mr. Feaster says he has put up extra security measures. He says neighbors are also on the lookout.

If you can help police catch the suspects in these shootings, please call Crime Stoppers at 215-STOP.
