Press Release

Since April 17th, The Demopolis Police Department has responded to five shootings incidents within the City limits of Demopolis. The most disturbing thing is in over half of these incidents children were present or in the nearby vicinity and these actions cannot be tolerated. I would like to commend the officers on patrol for their quick response, scene preservation and apprehension of suspects. Our investigators have put in a lot of time talking to victims, witnesses and securing evidence in these cases. There have been several arrests made, these investigations are still ongoing and more arrests are forthcoming. We would like to encourage anyone who sees anyone shooting or knows anything about a current case to reach out to our investigators by calling (334)289-3073 even if you wish to remain anonymous. We ask that everyone get involved in reporting these types of crimes ,because once a bullet leaves the barrel of a gun it will not stop until it hits something or someone and anybody could become a victim.
