Suspect sought in Anniston shooting
Anniston police are seeking a suspect in the
Saturday night shooting of two people in Anniston’s Glen Addie area.
Police said the shootings occurred just before 7 p.m. Saturday night
when two men were arguing, when one produced a firearm and fired
multiple times at the other. Bullets struck both the man he was
firing at and an elderly woman who was a bystander. The woman was
struck in the ankle. The man was struck three times, in the right
forearm, the right shoulder and the abdomen. Police said that they
have a suspect, but the man fled after firing the shots.
Anniston native killed in Iraq
Funeral services for Army Capt. Torre Remoine
Mallard, who was killed this week in Iraq, will be held Wednesday in
his native Anniston. The 27-year-old Mallard, a West Point
graduate, was among three soldiers who died Monday in Balad Ruz,
Iraq when their vehicle struck an explosive device. The Pentagon
originally listed Mallard as being from Oklahoma, where he had past
ties. He had lived in Lawton, Okla. about five years ago when his
father was stationed at Fort Sill. Mallard's wife of four years,
Bonita Mallard, lives in Killeen, Texas, with their two sons,
2-year-old Torre Jr., and 1-year-old Joshua, according to
relatives. Services will be Wednesday at 3 p.m. at 17th Street
Baptist Church in Anniston. Mallard was born in Anniston. His
grandparents live in Anniston, and his parents graduated from
Anniston High School.
