Scottsboro police are investigating what they believe to be murder and suicide. They say that an eight-month-pregnant woman was killed, but doctors managed to deliver the unborn baby.
At about 6:15 p.m., the police got a call about a suspicious car that had stopped on the road on Maple Street and North Houston Street. Officers arrived to find two people in the car with fatal bullet wounds, and they died.
Emergency responders transported the woman to Highlands Medical Center in an effort to save the unborn baby. The baby was born and then transferred to Huntsville Hospital for further care.
Police have identified the people involved as victim Amber Michelle Coffman, 35, and suspect Owen Deanglo Williamson, 33. Both are from Hollywood, AL.
Police say a preliminary investigation shows this is a murder and suicide and the motive is unknown at this time.
