MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Police in Alabama say a fatal shooting near a Mardi Gras parade route was the result of domestic violence.

News outlets report a man was killed and a woman was critically wounded Monday just before the start of a parade in Mobile.

Police arrested 49-year-old Anthony Orr hours after the shooting. He’s charged with several counts including murder.

Officials say the female victim is Orr’s ex-wife and the male victim was her boyfriend. Authorities say Orr had threatened to kill the man Sunday. He was also arrested last week on a domestic violence harassment charge.

No weapon was recovered when Orr was arrested.
