ATMORE, Ala. (WALA) -- The Atmore Police Department is  investigating a fatal shooting investigators say is related to a domestic violence incident Wednesday near the 3300 block of Woods Road.

Police say that at approximately 2:12 p.m. the Atmore PD received a 911 call from a woman in response to shooting her boyfriend during a domestic violence incident.

Atmore Police, Escambia County Sheriff’s Deputies, and ASAP emergency medical personnel responded to the residence. Law enforcement officers entered the home and found a male lying on the floor due to a single gun shot wound. He was pronounced deceased after life-saving measures were exhausted by EMS personnel.

The male was later identified as James Dennis Stanley II, of Prichard.

Evidence collected at the home by investigators suggest a violent confrontation occurred shortly before the shooting occurred, according to police.

At this time, no arrest has been made, but the case is still under investigation.
