Victim in northwest Huntsville shooting identified

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The Madison County Coroner’s Office has released the name of the victim of  a shooting in northwest Huntsville. Deputy Coroner Tyler Berryhill identified the victim as Tavion Willie, 25, of Huntsville.

The investigation started when police responded to the scene of a five-car accident at the intersection of Blue Spring Road and Mastin Lake Road late Wednesday morning.

When the police arrived at the scene of the accident, they found a passenger of one car with a gunshot wound. Huntsville Police Officer Lt. Stacy Bates said this investigation may be related to a call that came in about the same time reporting shots fired in the area of 4600 Blue Haven Dr.

Tavion Willie was transported to the hospital and was pronounced dead after his arrival.

No one else was injured in the car accident, and the intersection of Blue Spring and Mastin Lake Roads is now back open to traffic.
