MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Mobile police are investigating after a man was shot and killed at an apartment complex early Tuesday morning.

Mobile police say they were called to the Serenity Apartments at 557 Azalea Road for a shots fired complaint. When they arrived, they found a man suffering from a gunshot wound.

He was taken to the hospital where he later died. Police have identified the man as 41-year-old Darius Seltzer.

This is the 28th homicide Mobile police have investigated in 2019 so far. Police Chief Lawrence Battiste says they could not comment on this case at this time, as it is still under investigation. But, he says most violent crimes are emotional acts.

“Our homicides are not random homicides, they’re homicides that are committed by known individuals, the victims are usually to the person that perpetrates the crime against them,” said Battiste.

Police say there are no known suspects at this time, and they continue to investigate.
