BREAKING: Dothan police make breakthrough in October murder case

Top Stories

DOTHAN, Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan police officers and Douglas County deputies arrested a new suspect in the shooting death of a Dothan man back in October.

On Oct. 24, 2019, Rodney Caliste was shot in the face outside his home on Woodham Drive. The suspect fled the area, and for months, investigators looked for whoever was responsible.

Their search eventually led them to Douglasville, Georgia, where the DPD and the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office’s Criminal Investigation Division found a suspect this week.

The suspect — Marcus Hubbard, 49, of Douglasville — was taken into custody while he left his home.

Authorities charged the man with one count of murder. According to Lt. Will Glover, Hubbard and Caliste were business associates.

The investigation is still in progress as law enforcement conducts searches in the area. Hubbard reportedly faces some narcotics charges related to search warrants in the case.

Another arrest is possible in the case as well. Should anything else develop today, we will update this story.
