Selma Police Department respond to Mabry Street shooting

The Selma Police Department is investigating a shooting incident that took place before midnight Monday night.

According to Selma Police Chief Kenta Fulford, the suspects pulled up to a house on the 1700 block of Mabry Street around 11 p.m. Monday night. The suspects shot up a house, car and set another car on fire.

“The subjects set a car on fire to lure occupants out of the house, then fired shots at them,” Fulford said. “When they came out, the suspects opened fire, leaving the house and cars riddled with bullets.”

Fulford said SPD investigators are following up on leads. Fulford said anyone with information regarding the incident should call SPD investigators at (334) 874-2125.

This is the second reported shooting in the Queen City that occurred over the last week.

Jerry Aaron, 20, died from a gunshot wound from a shooting incident on April 25 at the 300 block of Kings Bend Road. The two other homicides in the Queen City this year are Renesia Levon Caver at the 3000 block of Burgandy Avenue (April 11) and a 17-year-old black teenager (Feb. 7).

Dallas County District Attorney Jackson announced this week that the drug task force and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) will assist the SPD and DCSO to cut down on the shootings and murders in the area.
