Gadsden Shooting Deaths Investigated

Gadsden police are investigating two deaths at Holiday Host Motel on East Meighan Boulevard. Police Captain Bobby Jackson says officers were attempting to serve a felony drug warrant on motel tenant Sasha Tarvin Saturday afternoon. After officers knocked on her door and made verbal contact, they heard a gunshot from inside the room. A couple of minutes later they heard another gunshot. Officers later entered the room and found Tarvin dead from a gunshot wound to the head. They also found her boyfriend, Justin Colvin with a gunshot wound. He later died at a local hospital. Initially, investigators thought Colvin shot Tarvin and them himself. They now say it’s possible that Tarvin shot herself and then Colvin used the same gun to shoot himself. Autopsies are underway today and more information will be available after forensics reports are complete.
