SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

The Selma Police Department is investigating a homicide after an early Tuesday morning call, according to Police Chief Spencer Collier.

Collier said officers responded to a 6 a.m. call of a person down at the intersection of Pettus Street and Abbott Avenue.

Officers found the body of a man in a nearby field. He was later identified as 24-year-old local resident Quentin Davis.

Collier said officers received reports Monday night of shots fired near the 400 block of Pettus, but they did not find anything.

The chief believes Davis was most likely killed Monday night. Multiple shell casings were found in the area and the chief says it appears Davis was running away when he died in the field.

Collier said a pistol was found under Davis' body and that it appears there was an exchange of gunfire between the victim and suspects.

A motive remains unknown.

Collier said investigators are looking for two males who were seen wearing dark colored clothing. A detailed description was unavailable.
