Selma Police are searching for two men in connection with a Tuesday evening shooting in the area of Union Street and Philpot Avenue.

According to information from the Selma Police Department, Jeremy Gordon and Myron Gordon, are wanted in connection with a shooting that left victim K’chebe Boyd in a local hospital with a gunshot wound to the back.

“The victim is in serious but stable condition,” Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said Wednesday. “The preliminary investigation has found that the victim had been in an argument with two individuals prior to the shooting.”

Riley said Jeremy and Myron approached Boyd near the intersection, produced a handgun and demanded money.

“The victim struggled with the suspects and then was shot in the back by one of them,” Riley said. “After the shooting, both suspects ran from the scene.”

Police responded to the call around 8:30 p.m. where they found Boyd lying on the ground. He was transported to Vaughan Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Wednesday afternoon, the department released the photos of the two suspects and has requested the community’s help in apprehending the suspects.

This shooting comes two days after another shooting in Selma nearly claimed the life of a 72-year-old man on Shelley Street. That victim, Willie James Thomas, remains in serious condition in a Montgomery hospital, where he is reportedly paralyzed from the gunshot wound to the neck.

A person of interest, Carlos Hyatt, has been identified in that shooting case and police are continuing to seek his whereabouts.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jeremy and Myron Gordon or Carlos Hyatt ,are asked to contact CrimeStoppers by calling 877-3530 or 1-800-44-CRIME (442-7463).
