Montgomery has 2 killings in 2 hours


MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Montgomery police say they investigated two killings within two hours.

Police say 21-year-old Cordarrius Woodall and 20-year-old Leonard Reese got into an argument at a birthday party about 1:40 a.m. Saturday. Reese pulled a gun and fired it multiple times at Woodall. Woodall was pronounced dead at the scene and Reese was charged with murder. The Montgomery man is in the county jail with bond set at $75,000.

Police got their first call about a killing at 11:59 p.m. Friday. They found 26-year-old Terrance Murphy had been shot several times in a vehicle. They charged 31-year-old Mario Cobb with capital murder. He is being held in the county jail without bond.

Court records do not indicate if Cobb and Reese have attorneys yet.
