UPDATE: (8:23 a.m.) — Prichard Police have released the following statement on the double homicide that happened Thursday morning:

On 10/3/2019 @ approximately 12:19 hrs, officers responded to 2927 Bellmeade Dr, in reference to shots fired in the area. Upon their arrival at this location, it was quickly observed that there were multiple victims suffering from gunshot wounds. A black male subject (Tyvontae Johnson) and a black female subject (Jasmine Fields) were both pronounced dead on the scene, while a third victim was transported to USA Hospital for treatment of a gunshot injury to the chest. Upon speaking with several witnesses, this incident appears to be Domestic related, and will probably be investigated as a “Murder/ Suicide”. We will also be seeking counseling through Mobile Child Advocacy Center (CAC) for the female victims (2) young children, who were inside the vehicle at the time this incident happened, and watched their mother get gunned down. The case is still ongoing.
