“Two guys were fighting two other guys after a female, who had gotten into a dispute with the two victims, called the other two guys [Sheppard and McGhee] to come to the scene and they got into a fight,” Jackson said.

911 wasn’t called, and Dansby was at the scene of the altercation for approximately 30 minutes. He was later transported to UAB where he was pronounced dead.

Sheppard and Barnett are in Perry County Jail with no bond, according to Jackson.
