Update: Woman Shot in Arab Feb. 5 Dies

ARAB, Ala. (WHNT) – Police in Arab say a woman shot earlier this month has died.

Amy Hopkins, 44, died Wednesday morning, police said.  She was shot several times at a home on Brookside Drive the evening of February 5.

Arab Police have people questioned people who may have been involved. “Two of the people who were in the house were asleep they heard the gunshots, so we spoke with them but we don’t have any motive yet,” Chief Ed Ralston says.

Investigators are looking at the evidence in this case to find out what happened. If they find foul play was a factor, this case would be the first homicide the department has worked since 2008.

Officers say they have had five death investigations in the last year and a half, but those did not involve any kind of foul play.

Chief Ralston attributes the lack of shootings and shooting related deaths to several factors. “Some with our police force, some with our investigators, and some with the residents here who are always good to call if they see something suspicious.”

Arab Police say if you have information about this case to call the department at (256) 586 – 8124.
