Chief Chuck Brooks said Rodarious Dailey, of Atmore, will be extradited back to Alabama.

According to Atmore Advance archives, on Nov. 27, the APD received a 911 call to a residence on Harris Street in response to a person being shot. 

Brooks said APD officers responded to the location and made contact with a male victim with a gunshot wound to the upper body.

The male victim was transported to Atmore Community Hospital where he later died, Brooks said in a release.

Brooks said the victim was 17 years old of Atmore.

“Atmore police learned from witnesses at the scene the male victim was sitting in the back seat of a vehicle parked at the above address when a lone suspect entered the property,” he said. “APD investigators were told the gunman then fired into the car striking the victim.”
