One suspect still sought in New Year’s Eve murder

Police are still looking for the fifth and final suspect in a string of New Year’s Eve shootings that left two dead and at least two others injured.



Four suspects have been arrested since January, but police continue to look for Alfred Parnell. He is wanted for murder in connection with the death of Antoine Stallworth.

Back-and-forth shootings on the last day of the year also resulted in the death of Mary Whatley.

Authorities believe the deadly chain of events started Dec. 30, when Parnell’s brother, Eric, was shot in the back in the 2100 block of Church Street.

Clarence Brenson, Glentravious Olds, Frederick Turner and Antonio Whatley all face attempted murder in Parnell’s shooting.

Later that day, Nikki Olds was shot in the arm on Tucker Avenue.

The violence continued on New Year’s Eve when Whatley’s mother, Mary, was shot and killed about 3:30 p.m. leaving her home in the 1600 block of Maple Street in Selmont.

About an hour later, the shooting came back over the bridge to GWC Homes, where Stallworth was fatally shot during a barrage of bullets between Olds and Parnell.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Parnell should call the Secret Witness Line at (334) 874-2190 or the Crime Stoppers number at (334) 874-2588 or 1-866-422-7463.
