Attempted Murder Investigation Arrest

The Birmingham Police Department reports that detectives have arrested and charged a suspect in connection with an attempted murder investigation.  The incident occurred on Wednesday, October 23, 2013 at approximately 5:45 p.m., at 3925 9th Court, Wylam.

Officers from the West Precinct responded to the incident location to investigate a call of a person shot.  Officers arrived to find two victims suffering from gunshot wounds.  Both victims were transported to UAB Hospital for treatment of their injuries.  Both victims are expected to recover from their injuries.

Upon further investigation, BPD Homicide detectives were able to identify the suspect as the person responsible for the shooting.  Detectives learned that the victim was asked to leave the store because of his behavior and shortly after a fight arose between the suspect and store owner. Moments later the suspect shot the store owner and his brother.

The suspect has been identified as: Randall Gooden, B/M, 38, of Birmingham, Alabama. Two Attempted Murder warrants with bonds totaling $120,000.00 have been obtained against the suspect.  The suspect is in the custody of the Jefferson County Jail.

A photo of the suspect may be obtained at the B.P.D. Headquarters, located at 1710 1st Avenue North.
