JEFFERSON COUNTY — New information was made available in the investigation into a shooting that occurred in the McDonald Chapel area on Dec. 31. Two people were injured in the incident. One of the injured, 18-year-old Censere Calhoun, died at an area hospital as a result of the shooting.
According to authorities, the initial reports were that two men had been shooting at each other in the parking lot of a convenience store located at McDonald’s Chapel Road and Birmingport Road. Both men suffered gunshot wounds and were taken to UAB Hospital by private vehicles. Calhoun passed away at the hospital. The second man was expected to survive.
Since the initial incident, detectives learned that Calhoun and the other man had an ongoing feud. The two had been in a confrontation a day earlier, according to the sheriff’s department.
Authorities revealed that on Dec. 3, Calhoun located the other man at the convenience store on Birmingport Road. He approached the man as he was sitting in his car and pointed a gun at him. Calhoun demanded his “stuff” back and shot the other man. After being shot the man got out of his car and returned fire at Calhoun.
Once the investigation is completed, it will be reviewed by the District Attorney’s Office to determine what, if any, charges will result.
