The other individual involved in the shooting is listed as in serious condition at a hospital in Montgomery.

“Police are investigating this shooting and are speaking with all witnesses to determine the reason behind the shooting,” Stewart said.

The police department will not identify anyone involved in the shooting because it is an ongoing investigation.

However, Maurice Valdez Pullom, 25, of Selma, has been identified by people who say they were witnesses at the scene as having died as a result of a gunshot wound.

The other individual was identified by witnesses at the scene as from Orrville.
