A Selma man has been arrested after fatally shooting his girlfriend and wounding her adult daughter, AL.com reported.
Melvin Jerome Marshall, 44, has been charged with murder, first-degree domestic violence assault, and discharging into an occupied vehicle, according to the Selma Times-Journal.
Selma police said they responded to a call about gunshot victims on Saturday afternoon and found Renesia Levon Caver, 56, and her 20-year-old daughter suffering from gunshot wounds.
Both were taken to a nearby hospital, where Caver was pronounced dead. Her daughter is expected to survive.
