MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — UPDATE 8:45 AM (8/19/19)- The Mobile Police Department has identified the man who died from gunshot wounds on Knollwood drive Saturday.
Police say 23-year-old Taheed King was found down outside Knollwood Apartments suffering from a gunshot wound. King died on the scene.
ORIGINAL STORY: Mobile police are investigating a homicide that happened at Knollwood Apartments Saturday morning.
Police responded to a shooting at about 11:30 a.m., and have confirmed the victim is an adult male.
“It’s kind of disconcerting,” said Josh Ward.
Ward works out at Medal of Honor Park several times a week. His parents also live near Knollwood Apartments.
“We haven’t had a lot of stories of violence in this area,” said Ward.
He was unsettled to hear a man had been shot and killed just across the street from the park.
“That’s why it’s kind of surprising. Several years back, there were some issues in this park, but it’s mostly cleared up. You know. To hear about things like that, things like that happen everywhere,” he said.
Police were seen still actively investigating throughout the day, searching for any information to figure out what happened.
“You never know, you could be that one call that could be the one glimmer of light that shines on that investigation,” said Ward.
The investigation is ongoing.
