1 suspect surrenders
UPDATE: The Mobile County Sheriff’s Office arrested one of two people wanted in connection with a home invasion in Citronelle left two people injured and one in critical condition.
The sheriff’s office said 31-year-old Shelbie Byrd turned herself in Monday.
According to investigators, Byrd and Dylan Adams broke into a home on Archie Allen Road. Lt. Mark Bailey said the home belonged to Byrd’s ex-boyfriend and once inside, Adams, her current boyfriend, confronted the victim and his relative with a shotgun and fired several rounds in the house hitting both of them.
Bailey said there may have been domestic violence issues between Byrd and her ex-boyfriend.
“I believe she ended up telling her new boyfriend about some of the previous domestic violence with her ex-boyfriend and Mr. Adams took it upon himself to, I guess, defend her honor,” Bailey said.
Adams is still wanted for first-degree burglary and first-degree assault and is considered armed and dangerous, according to authorities.
