Demopolis Teen Charged in Father’s Shooting Death
A Demopolis juvenile has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of his father.
Police say they found 40 year old Joseph Goodwin with a gunshot wound in the head when they responded to the shooting.
They say the juvenile was arrested in Lauderdale County, Mississippi and brought back to Marengo County.
They say it happened at a residence on the 700 block of Herbert Street just after midnight Friday.
“Everybody that’s been affected by what happened this past Friday morning is one family cause they’re on both sides of it, the person who is responsible and the person who is now deceased,” said Marengo Co. District Attorney Greg Griggers. “So, its a tragic situation for that family.”
Police say the shooting remains under investigation.
