Earlier this month, Dothan police investigators had filed capital murder charges on Christina Moore’s death. The officers caught the second suspect, who was involved in the shooting in Lena Street. He is charged for shooting the death of a woman, who resided in Dothan on South Lena Street.
The members of the US Marshal’s Gulf Coast Regional Fugitive Task Force along with Ashford by Dothan Police investigators found Dontavian McCree, a 24 years old suspect at his home in Ashford.
The police took the 24 years old into custody. According to the sources, the community helped the cops while arresting the suspect. The incident occurred on September 6, 2020, at 5:02 am at S.

That morning, cops received a call that reported a firearm assault where the victim was in critical condition. When the police officers arrived at the crime scene, they saw that Christina Moore had major injuries. Apart from that, the cops also declared Moore dead at the scene.
Dontavian McCree is indicted for shooting into an occupied dwelling, attempted murder, as well as capital murder. The authorities have held him without a bond. According to the news sources, 23 years old Phillip Barkley Jr., who is the first suspect is facing the same charges. He was also involved in the murder of Christina Moore.
