As of Wednesday morning, Mobile police are investigating what they are calling a “shooting death”.
MPD confirmed a woman was found with a gunshot wound to the head Tuesday night in the 7000 block of Bay Road. She was sitting in a car parked near an abandoned home around 7PM. Neighbors called police after spotting the car near the home.
“I was shocked,” one neighbor said, “we saw all the police cars, we didn’t know what was going on”.
Police have not called this investigation a homicide or suicide, just a death investigation. Detectives are still meeting with the victim’s family. Family members confirmed the victim is 27-year old Sheneice Sumpter. She leaves behind a young son. Her sister, Myosha Nelson, said her death is suspicious.
“I just think she was unhappy…” she said, “we want justice, I really can’t speak on what’s going on”
Local 15 will continue to follow the investigation.
