Murder Investigation in Anniston
A disagreement over money has left one person dead and another in jail for murder. According to Anniston Police Sergeant Kyle Price, 29-year-old Jeremy Oliver of Anniston has been charged with the murder of 29-year-old Tavosiea Thomas. Sergeant Price reports that officers were called to the 1800 block of Moore Avenue earlier today after a report of gunshots being fired.
When they arrived to the scene, Thomas was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to a nearby hospital where he later died. Officers then learned that Oliver also suffered multiple gunshot wounds and drove himself to a nearby hospital to be treated for non-life-threatening injuries.
Multiple witnesses told investigators that Thomas and Oliver were arguing over money before the shots were fired. Oliver was released from the hospital and arrested for Thomas’ murder. The Anniston Police Department is continuing to investigate this incident.
