Belmeade Drive shooting

The Prichard Police Department is investigating a shooting that left two people dead on Belmeade Drive early Thursday morning, Oct. 3, 2019.

The City of Prichard released the following new information just after 8 a.m. Thursday, naming the victims:

On 10/3/2019 @ approximately 12:19 hrs, officers responded to 2927 Bellmeade Dr, in reference to shots fired in the area. Upon their arrival at this location, it was quickly observed that there were multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds. A black male subject (Tyvontae Johnson) and a black female subject (Jasmine Fields) were both pronounced dead on the scene, while a third victim (Shemeka Stabler) was transported to USA Hospital for treatment of a gunshot injury to the chest.  Upon speaking with several witnesses, this incident appears to be Domestic related, and will probably be investigated as a “Murder/ Suicide”. We will also be seeking counseling through Mobile Child Advocacy Center (CAC) for the female victims (2) young children, who were inside the vehicle at the time this incident happened, and watched their mother get gunned down. The case is still ongoing.
