Both suspects when found will face felony charges for discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling and five misdemeanor counts for reckless endangerment.

If arrested and charged, the two suspects are likely to be placed in the Dallas County Jail under bonds totalling $90,000 each.

At approximately 11:30 a.m. Thursday, the two suspects after exiting their vehicle, walked up to the home on the 1500 block of L.L. Anderson Avenue and fired multiple shots in the direction. There is a possibility some of these shots struck the home.



According to Sgt. Curtis Muhannad, with the Selma Police Department, an elderly woman and a young black male were in the home at the time. No one was injured.

“The suspects fled the scene in a beige or tan colored vehicle believed to be a Chevrolet Cavalier,” Muhannad said. “They went east on L.L. Anderson Avenue and it is believed they traveled north on Marie Foster.”

Selma Chief of Police William T. Riley said the tan or beige Cavalier carries the Alabama license plate 27B7652.

Camelle Posey, who lives near where the incident occurred, said she heard the shots.

“It was about four shots,” Posey said. “The whole street heard it and everyone came out.”
