Mobile Man Killed In Early Morning Shooting

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -
Mobile Police responded to Apartment F-11 at the South of Dauphin Apartment Complex around 6 a.m. Sunday.
 
They found 26 year old O'Brien Russell shot to death inside his home.
 
"Like a loud boom and then the dude that was actually trying to get everybody's attention, banging on the doors telling us to call 911," said a neighbor.
 
Russell's neighbor made the initial 911 call, but the victim died before police arrived.
 
"It's scary because we've got my little cousin who's staying in the house and the bullets could've come up here," said a neighbor.
 
"I have a 16-month old so I'm very uneasy, very, he runs around all the time so I'm very uneasy," said a neighbor.
 
Residents were too afraid to go on camera, but they tell News 5 a security guard typically patrols the complex. They want to know where he was when the shooting happened.
 
"Yeah, they're supposed to be a security guard, we have a security guard here. When something like this goes on you don't ever see the security guard he's nowhere in sight so where's the security guard where's our safety? Somebody needs to step up," said a neighbor.
