Does anyone have details on this? The only thing I can gather is apparently this was NOT random and the house was specifically targeted for a reason.

This was a targeted attack, not a random act of violence.

BUT there have been a number of break-ins in Montibello, Mountain Brook, and the Stonecroft communities.

In several cases the homeowners were home, but did not answer their doorbell. The perpetrators, thinking no one was home, walked around back and removed the power panel from the homes and cut the phone lines then looted the properties.

If you are home and the doorbell rings show some sign that someone IS home.

No side of town is exempt from drugs or violance. Glad we live in a gated community...it is not exempt either...but it has worked so far and makes us feel safer.

From the CMPD email list:

Press release from last night's home invasion off Elm Lane.
Greetings,

Below you will find the press releases regarding the home invasion that occurred last night on Scoth Heather Way. I also want everyone to know that this incident is in no way related to the 2 robberies at Colony Place Shopping Center nor is it related to the robbery in the Carrington Community which was also drug related and also was not a random incident.

Best regards,

Captain R. M. Golding

South Division

Press Release

Based on interviews and physical evidence, Detectives learned that this incident began as a drug-related robbery. After several interviews and the discovery of controlled substances on scene, two of the residents were charged with numerous offenses. The charges and individuals are identified as follows:

Ryan Clark Tucker W/M 1/12/1985 charged with P/W/I/S/D Marijuana, Felony Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Maintain a Vehicle for Use Storage of Sale of Controlled Substance

Sean Nicholls Tobin, W/M 1/12/1985 charged with P/W/I/S/D Marijuana, Felony Possession of Marijuana, Possession of Drug Paraphernalia and Maintain a Vehicle for Use Storage of Sale of Controlled Substance

Both of these subjects are residents of 8919 Scotch Heather Way.


The shooting victim has not been positively identified at this time. Homicide Detectives are continuing their attempts to determine the identification of the deceased.

The Homicide Detectives will present the completed investigation surrounding this incident to the District Attorney who will determine what if any charges will be filed related to the homicide.
