Selma Police are looking for a 23-year-old Selma man in connection with a shooting that left a Lowndesboro man dead Sunday afternoon. And two Selma women have been charged with allegedly helping the suspect to escape Alabama.
Vardarius Hall, 23, is wanted on murder charges and is considered armed and dangerous, according to the Selma Police Department.
Selma Police Chief John Brock said investigators speculate Hall and Lowndesboro resident Jermaine Tarver, 27, were playing cards at Towns Circle in the police jurisdiction when the two men got into an altercation over personal property. “Mr. Hall pulled a handgun and shot Mr. Tarver multiple times,” Brock said.
Authorities said Tarver was shot five to seven times, mostly in the upper torso area. He was transported to Vaughan Regional Medical Center by private vehicle. Tarver was pronounced dead in the hospital’s emergency room.
“We’ve got active murder warrants on Mr. Hall as a class A felony,” Brock said. “The quicker we can get him into custody the better off so the family can start the [healing] process.”
Kenyatta Shantae Wilson, 21, and Jalysa Shanjetti Turner, 19, were arrested Tuesday evening after being interviewed at the Selma Police Department.
Both women were charged with one count of first-degree hindering prosecution, a class B felon, and were transported to the Dallas County Jail with no bond as of Tuesday evening.
“We learned that after the shooting incident, they together transported Mr. Hall out of Selma,” said Selma Police Department Lt. Tori Neely.
Authorities believe Turner and Wilson transported Hall to Oklahoma immediately after the shooting and then to Florida.
