Police continue to look for a man investigators believe is responsible for a Sunday evening shooting in Dothan that claimed the life of a local man.

Dothan Police Lt. Lynn Watkins said investigators are searching for 23-year-old Tayshawn Stevenson, of Dothan, in connection with the shooting. Stevenson is described as a black male, approximately 6’ tall and weighing approximately 230 pounds.

Police responded to a firearm assault call Sunday at 9:19 p.m., in the 100 block of Naomi Drive.

“Once officers arrived on scene, the victim was located, deceased in the yard,” Watkins said. “Hall suffered two gunshot wounds; one wound to the upper back area and one wound to forearm.
