BIRMINGHAM – The Birmingham Police Department is investigating a homicide from April 26.
The incident occurred in the 4500 block of Richard Arrington Jr. Boulevard North. Around 3:30 that afternoon, officers responded to a male shot at the above location. Officers arrived to find Timothy Anthony, 30 of Birmingham, suffering from multiple gun shot wounds. He was transported to UAB Hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries.
Upon investigation, detectives found the victim went into the store to purchase some items when another male entered the store a short time later. At this time, it is unclear what happened inside the store between both men, but the suspect shot the victim several times and fled the scene.
“The case is clearly not a random shooting,” said Lt. Sean Edwards. “The suspect knew exactly who he wanted to shoot.”
Anyone with information about this cause should contact the Birmingham Police Department Homicide Unit at 254-1764 or CrimeStoppers at 254-7777.
