JEFFERSON COUNTY — A 42-year-old man was shot and killed in McCalla on Tuesday, August 2, at approximately 11:18 p.m.
The man has been identified by the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office as Thomas Allen Everett.
According to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies were dispatched to a home in the 5500 block of Myron Clark Road in McCalla. Neighbors reported that a male was shot and lying in a yard.
“Upon arrival, deputies located a 42-year-old male who had been shot to death,” Lieutenant Joni Money said. “The adult shooter remained on the scene to speak with detectives.”
At this time, detectives are still investigating the circumstances surrounding the shooting and continue to question witnesses. The final evidence developed in the investigation will be presented to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office in Bessemer to determine if charges will be filed.
