DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -A woman is charged with Capital Murder related to a shooting in Dothan on Monday. Carmen Lairish Kirkland, 31, had been detained at the Walnut Street scene.

She is accused in the death of Precious Warren, a 33-year old Dothan woman with whom police believe she shared a boyfriend with Kirkland and that is what led to the confrontation.

This is the latest incident in a recent shooting spree that left four dead and several others, including a child, wounded.

“We need public help in solving these crimes,” said Dothan Police Lieutenant Scott Owens, who admitted to reporters he is frustrated.

While he thinks most people are willing to help police, he also believes some withhold information in fear of retaliation.

Kirkland is held without bond and potentially faces death, if convicted.
