TALLADEGA COUNTY -- The Talladega County Sheriff’s Office is asking for help in identifying a suspect in a shooting into an occupied dwelling on Silver Run Road in Munford.
According to Sgt. Mike Jones, the incident took place between 10:30 and 11 Saturday night. The victim, a 35-year-old woman, and another family member, were asleep when they heard shots, apparently coming from the outside the front of the house.
A living room window and wooden closet door were damaged. Neither of the people inside the house were injured, but the family dog in the yard was struck and killed, Jones said.
Investigators have recovered three .380 caliber shell casings from the scene, but to date have not been able to identify any witnesses or suspects in the case.
