Police Confident They'll Find the Man Who Allegedly Killed a Mother of 3
From Montgomery -- Police are not giving up the search for the man who killed a mother of three at her home off South Decatur Street two weeks ago. Police say the suspect Albert Davis is considered armed and dangerous and could be anywhere.
Alicia Scott was outside of her apartment when police say several men started shooting at each other over drugs. Neighbors say Scott's three children were home, and they say she was holding her youngest when she was caught in the crossfire.
"We don't know when the next incident is going to happen," says Valessa Henderson. "It got pretty quiet here."
Henderson says her Patterson Court Apartment Complex has been a ghost town. The screams not forgotten. Henderson's neighbor still missed.
Scott was a mother of three. She was killed the day before her child's birthday.
"Somebody took her away from the children, so it's been really hard for the community," says Henderson.
Police say Davis killed Scott. They have been searching for him since last Wednesday.
"It kind of makes us spooked, because we don't know what he may be thinking and who he may be after," says Henderson.
Lt. Regina Duckett says they do not know if Davis is in Montgomery or if he fled the area, but she wants to make it clear: if he is running or hiding, he will be caught.
"Just yesterday, we announced we charged a suspect in reference to two homicides from 1999, so it is very important for Mr. Davis to understand that we are not going to stop pursuing him," she says.
Scott's apartment is empty. New renters are looking at the place. Henderson says the community is praying justice prevails. Hoping the community can rest again.
"It could have been anybody. Anybody walking up and down the path or anybody walking down the sidewalk," Henderson says.
Alabama News Network did speak to family members today. They did not want to go on camera, but they say they are still healing and fighting tears. They say her children are doing alright, but it's going to be hard explaining what happened when they get older.
Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to Davis's arrest. If you know of his whereabouts, call Crime Stoppers at (334) 215-STOP.
