TRIANA, Ala. (WHNT) — The Madison County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after one man died and a woman was injured in a shooting in Triana.
The sheriff’s office confirmed Jaycen Tori Ervin, 47, was shot numerous times and died of those injuries.
The shooting happened on Ervin Lane around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday.
HEMSI officials confirmed a woman with a gunshot wound was picked up by emergency crews at a home on Record Street.
Police said the shooting started in front of a home on Ervin Lane. A neighbor, who did not want to be identified, said that the woman tried to escape the gunfire.
“From my understanding, I don’t know who she is, but they say she laid on the ground just to protect herself from them steady shooting at her.”
The woman was taken to Huntsville Hospital Trauma Services with non-life-threatening injuries and is expected to make a full recovery.
One neighbor said he rushed to the scene after he got a phone call from a family member who told him a man that he knew had collapsed in the yard.
“A couple of females got to hollering and we ran around the side of the house and found the man’s body. It was kind of eye-opening because it’s somebody that you know and to see him lose his life over something just senseless as somebody just riding by shooting,” the neighbor said.
