MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery police say three people were questioned and two people were taken into custody after a shooting incident in Cloverdale Saturday.
Sgt. Jarrett Williams says officers located a vehicle believed to have been involved in a shooting which took place at the intersection of Woodley Road and East Fairview Avenue in Cloverdale. Three people in the vehicle were detained for questioning. Two of those were taken to the city jail on unrelated charges.
Additional charges are pending as police seek to identify the suspects responsible, Williams says.
City Councilman Arch Lee lives only a mile away from where the shots were fired, and he heard them.
“We hear shootings on 4th of July and NYE, although we hear some gunshots, this was above what people are used to hearing,” he said.
Lee said the solution to crimes like this is to get tough and catch the people responsible, putting them in jail and keeping them there.
The shooting in Cloverdale was one of numerous incidents involving gun violence in the capital city over the weekend.
Williams says officers were first called to Edgar Nixon Avenue Friday afternoon where a man was seriously injured in a shooting. No arrests have been made in that case.
On Saturday, officers responded to a shooting near Maxwell Air Force Base and found three people who had been shot.
Williams says officers were then called to the 5700 block of Villas Lane. A woman had life-threatening injuries from that shooting.
Police later charged 22-year-old Markel Thomas with murder following a shooting Saturday on Rosa L. Parks Avenue.
On Sunday, officers arrested 32-year-old Kennoris Green after a shooting in the 3700 block of Woodley Road. Williams says the shooting happened after Green and the victim got into a verbal altercation.
Police are asking anyone with knowledge about the Cloverdale shooting or any of the other shootings to call CrimeStoppers at 215-STOP, the secret witness line at 625-4000 or MPD at 625-2831.
