LEVEL PLAINS, Ala. (WDHN) — Level Plains Police are continuing to investigate a shooting into an occupied building in late May.
31 bullet casings were found at the crime scene from two different guns, fortunately, no one was harmed.
The shooting happened on May 28.
According to police, the fight started in Elba, then the fight continued at the Waffle House in Enterprise. Police then believe the disagreement escalated before the shots were fired into a home on Z Street in Level Plains.
Darrell Davis, of Ozark, turned himself in on Monday. However, police believe there is another suspect, who is a minor, who may have been involved in the shooting.
“Because one way or the other, we are going to have to figure out exactly what went on and we are not going to stop looking until we get the full answer of what went on,” Level Plains Police Chief John Summers said.
The house that was shot at was occupied by four men, a mother, and a woman who was pregnant.
“We’re just blessed that nobody in that house or anybody else got caught by a stray bullet or was killed,” Chief Summers said.
This is the first shooting that Chief Summers has had to deal with in his three years as chief of Level Plains Police.
“If people aren’t made accountable for what they do. Things like this continue and you got to make people understand that there is a price to pay to do something like this,” Chief Summers said.
Davis now has a bond of $200,000 and is in the Dale County Jail.
Davis does not have a previous criminal history, but Chief Summers believes that he needs to learn from this mistake.
“We want to give everybody a second chance, but there are some things you need to learn from and this is one of them,” Chief Summers said.
Police add that two vehicles rolled up to the house at the time of the shooting but that shots were fired from only one of the cars.
