NEW INFORMATION: One Person Killed in Shooting on O’Fallon Road in Huntsville
HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville police confirm one person has been killed in a shooting on O’Fallon Road.
It happened just before 11 p.m. Officers say Demarco Moore, 23, was dead when they arrived at the crime scene.
Witnesses tell police a man wearing a ski mask with skulls on it entered the home. That’s when he shot the victim with what witnesses believed to be a shotgun.
Investigators say the shooter left the area on foot. Police Canine units searched the area until they lost the scent about half a mile north of the home.
This marks Huntsville’s sixth homicide of 2014. Huntsville Police Chief Morris said in a press release that these six homicides are not random acts of violence. Instead, each of the victims in the five previous homicides knew their assailants.
