Investigators are seeking leads in connection to a shooting that left a Selma woman injured.

The Selma Police Department responded to a call of a gunshot victim around 10 p.m. Saturday on the 1600 block of Hayden Street.

The 31-year-old victim was shot in the lower right stomach with a 9 mm caliber bullet, according to Sgt. Evelyn Ghant. The victim was airlifted to Baptist South in Montgomery where she was treated for non-life threatening injuries and later released. Ghant said the victim was outside during her boyfriend’s birthday party when she was shot.

“She heard a shot, but didn’t realize she was shot when she went inside the house,” Ghant said. “She doesn’t know who shot her.”

There are currently no suspects for the shooting, but investigators continue to pursue leads.

Ghant said although there were plenty of witnesses, none of them have come forward with information.

Community participation spearheaded the investigation of a drive-by shooting the weekend before at the intersection of U.S. 80 and Alabama 41 that left two men in critical condition.

Within a week after the shooting, 20-year-old Xavier Waller, 27-year-old Ken Prevo, and 27-year-old Corey Pullom were arrested and each charged with two counts of attempted murder.

District Attorney Michael Jackson said one victim, a 32-year-old man, is still being hospitalized for his injuries and multiple gunshot wounds in the torso.

Since being admitted, the victim has been upgraded from critical to stable condition.

The second victim, a 42-year-old man, was released from the hospital within days after the shooting and is recovering from gunshot wounds to his left arm and left leg.

Investigators encourage anyone with information regarding Saturday’s shooting to call Crime Stoppers at 1-866-442-7463.
