BIRMINGHAM — Detectives from the Birmingham Police Department are conducting a homicide investigation following an incident occurred on Saturday, September 12, according to Sgt. Rodarius Mauldin.
The deceased has been identified as Reginald Horn, 22, of Birmingham.
“The Birmingham Police Department received a notification from the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office to be on the look out for a white sedan involved in a possible domestic related kidnapping,” Mauldin said. “Shortly after, BPD was alerted by Fultondale Police Department that the vehicle involved was located nearby the 2200 block of 30th Avenue North.”
Mauldin said officers arriving on the scene reported hearing a gunshot. Officers located the subject Reginald Horn lying outside a car unresponsive suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.
Horn was pronounced deceased on the scene by Birmingham Fire and Rescue.
“The preliminary investigation suggest the bolo from Jefferson County was initiated after a female involved in a romantic relationship with Horn reported she and her sibling were being held against their will,” Mauldin said. “Reginald Horn reportedly drove them to 2001 30th Ave North where a physical altercation ensued resulting in Horn being fatally wounded. The motive in this homicide appears to be domestic in nature.”
There were persons of interest detained for further questioning. No arrest have been made. This is an ongoing investigation. Updates will be provided as further details develop.
