Shooting Death Investigation

The Birmingham Police Department reports that detectives are conducting a shooting death investigation. The incident occurred on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 at approximately 1:30 a.m., at 3212 Wesley Avenue.

The victim has been identified as: Desmond Bias, B/M, 36, of Birmingham, Alabama.

West Precinct officers responded to the incident location to investigate a report of a person shot. Upon arrival, officers located the victim lying in the roadway suffering from a gunshot wound. Birmingham Fire and Rescue arrived and pronounced the victim deceased on the scene. The second party involved in the incident was located at the scene and taken into custody.

Investigators learned that there was a domestic altercation between two adult couples that included the victim and his wife and the male shooter and his wife. Investigators found that the altercation began in the neighboring City of Midfield and proceeded to the incident location just before the shooting. Detectives are continuing to investigate and will present their findings to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office for review and determination if charges will be filed.

This incident is not believed to be associated with New Year’s Eve celebratory gunfire.

If there is anyone who has information pertaining to the case, they are encouraged to contact the BPD @ 254-1764 or Crime Stoppers at 254-7777.

Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
