No Arrests; Grand Jury To Review Fatal Shooting
MOBILE, Ala. (WPMI) - The Mobile County Sheriff's Office says no one has been arrested in a fatal shooting that happened Sunday morning. Instead, a grand jury will review the case. Tiyvan Deneil McCorvey,36, was shot and killed on McCovery Road Extention. Investigators say it may have been self defense.
Witnesses told investigators McCorvey went to a party, got into a fight, and followed the man he fought with back to a home. Investigators say McCorvey was armed with a shotgun and aimed it at someone, who then fired two rounds into McCorvey's chest, killing him.
McCorvey's grandmother says she is shocked by the news and has this message for the community:
"Whenever there's a disagreement or dispute. There's a better way. There's a better way than to take a person't life," said Erma Travis.
McCorvey has an extensive arrest record dating back to 1997. He was arrested earlier this year for harrassment.
