Alabama News


BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A landlord checking on an open door at a house in Birmingham found two people dead inside.

News outlets report that police are investigating the slayings but haven’t made any arrests. A neighbor noticed a door that was ajar at a rental house and notified the homeowner late Tuesday.

That person went to check on the house and found a man and a woman dead in a bedroom. Police say they’d been shot to death.

A police spokesman tells news outlets the victims were apparently killed sometime earlier during the day, but authorities haven’t released their names or any possible motive.
