MOBILE COUNTY, ALABAMA - One person is dead in a shooting on Bayou Jonas Road in South Mobile County. The Mobile County Sheriff's Office has identified the victim as 66-year-old Robert Perry.
Detectives say Perry was killed after the car he and his daughter was riding in was followed home. Investigators say two female suspects ran Perry off the road in a robbery attempt. Perry was apparently shot in a struggle over the gun.

The two suspects tried to escape the area, but were later captured by deputies. 25-year-old Kymberli Lindsay and 20-year-old Saraya Atkins were subsequently arrested and charged with murder and two counts of robbery first degree.

Detectives had iinitially thought a male accomplice may have helped the suspects in the crime, but later said it appears the two women acted alone.
