Anniston Police have identified the man killed
in a Saturday evening shooting on 18th street in the
city. Police say that 31 year old Marrio Dobbins, of Brown Avenue,
was driving a gold 1995 Nissan Sentra when another vehicle passed
him firing several shots striking Dobbins multiple times in the
upper legs and torso. Dobbins' Sentra rolled striking a parked
vehicle. Dobbins was transported to Regional Medical Center where
hospital and emergency personnel attempted to revive him. He was
pronounced dead just before 9 p.m. Saturday night. Investigators

Developer withdraws plans for Golden Springs
Developers of a proposed new shopping center in
Golden Springs withdrew a petition Monday for rezoning to allow
commercial development of property on Choccolocco Road just east of
its intersection with Golden Springs Road. The petition had upset
members of the neighborhood around the planned site who spoke
against it at an Oct. 18 planning commission meeting. The residents
argued in the public hearing on the petition that the project would
increase crime, lower property values, create traffic jams and cause
flooding of nearby homes. Georgia developer Jeff Davis, said he has
placed the development on hold and says he wants to get residents
on board with the plan before he moves forward with the project.
