An Alabama man is accused of shooting a woman to death and then fatally striking a bicyclist with a vehicle he stole at gunpoint, authorities said.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, around 5:30 p.m. on Oct. 29, deputies responding to a report of a shooting at a hotel in Fairfield found 30-year-old Kernisha Jenay McClinon suffering a fatal gunshot wound.
The shooting suspect, later identified as Cortney Dion Price, 38, fled the scene on foot, according to the sheriff’s office.
Just over an hour later, around 6:39 p.m., Price allegedly “took a vehicle from a family at gunpoint,” Agee said.
Five minutes after the alleged carjacking, Ray B. Dover Jr., 60, was bicycling when he was struck and killed by a vehicle that then drove away.
Deputies located the stolen vehicle and got into a pursuit with Price, who crashed.
The suspect was arrested and booked without bond into the Jefferson County jail in Bessemer on a murder charge.
Additional charges are expected, according to the Trussville Tribune.
