SELMA, Ala. (WSFA) - The Selma Police Department has opened its 10th homicide of 2021 after a weekend shooting claimed the life of a 76-year-old woman.

Police Chief Kenta Fulford said the victim, whose name has not been released, was found Sunday night when officers responded to Bradley Homes on reports of a shooting into an occupied dwelling.

Officers found the unresponsive woman suffering from a gunshot wound around 9:30 p.m. She was later pronounced dead.

“These, these gang members and gunslingers are getting out of hand around here,” said Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson. “They killed this elderly lady for no reason other than they [were] looking for one of her relatives.”

Fulford said detectives are canvassing the neighborhood looking for anyone who may have seen or heard anything that could help solve the crime.

So far, no suspects have been developed.
