Mobile Police investigate homicide on Stuardi Court
MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - On Sunday, November 19, 2023, at approximately 12:58 a.m., officers responded to reports of gunshots on Stuardi Court. Upon arrival, Mobile Police discovered a deceased 17-year-old male in a yard near the 6400 block of Stuardi Court.
According to the Mobile Police Department, preliminary findings reveal that there was an exchange of gunfire between the decedent and individuals seated inside a vehicle parked in a driveway on Stuardi Court.
Reginald Reese is a local pastor whose church is nearby from where the shooting happened.
Reese says too many teens are dying to gun violence.
“Everybody gets angry, that’s just a common natural emotion,” Reese said. “And if you got a gun in your hand, put your gun up. Lock in the vault.”
No arrests have been made.
Pastor Reese hopes this loss of life can wake people up.
“We just hope and pray that the incident itself will just wake up people especially in this neighborhood,” Reese said.
MPD has not released the identity of the teen, but neighbors tell FOX10 News he was a senior at Blount High school.
