Anniston Police seeking suspects in Friday
Anniston police are searching for two suspects
wanted in connection with a shooting that left one man dead and
another injured in south Anniston Friday afternoon. First-degree
murder and attempted-murder warrants have been issued for 52 year
old William Bradford, and 18 year old Quindarious Nofsinger, both
of Anniston. Investigators said the two men apparently drove up to a
house on South Allen Ave., got out of their car, and fired at the
victims before driving away.
When police arrived at the scene, one victim
was lying on the ground and unresponsive. The other victim was
injured and was taken to Regional Medical Center. 65 year old Billy
Deerman of Oxford was pronounced dead at the scene at 2:43 Friday
afternoon. 50 year old Eugene Alexander, of Anniston was in stable
condition at regional medical center. Shortly after the shooting,
Anniston police recovered a white Chrysler convertible on Acker
Place that they believe to be the vehicle used by the suspects.
Police believed the suspects were armed with assault rifles.
Anniston man killed in Sunday accident
A Sunday morning accident on Alabama 202 has
claimed the life of an Anniston man. Officials said that 38 year
old Jeffery Lane Coleman, suffered multiple blunt force trauma
injuries when his vehicle rolled over. He was transported to
Regional Medical Center where he was pronounced dead at 1:04 a.m.
Bond authority to discuss Goodyear funding
A state bond authority will meet this week to
consider its first projects, including Goodyear's Tire and Rubber
Co. plant in Gadsden, under a new bond authority ceiling approved by
voters in June. State Sen. Roger Bedford, chairman of the Senate
Finance and Taxation General Fund Committee, said Friday that the
Capital Improvement Trust Fund bond commission will meet Thursday
to consider bond approval for steelmaker Thyssen-Krupp, Hyundai
Motor Manufacturing Alabama and Goodyear. Bedford, a member of the
committee, said he believes the state is seeking $20 million to $25
million in bond authority for Goodyear's $125 million
modernization. Goodyear and the state are working on an agreement
that will help preserve the plant's 1,300 or so jobs in Gadsden.
Goodyear is the state's largest industrial incentive project
following a railroad boxcar project known as Project Tiger in
Colbert County. Voters in June approved a constitutional amendment
to increase the state's bond ceiling from oil and gas revenues from
$350 million to $750 million to accommodate industrial projects.
