Monday Night Shooting of Two Women Leads to Arrest of Dothan Man

On July 12, 2021, the Dothan Police Department Communications Center was notified by a local hospital that two victims entered the emergency room.  Each victim was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds and one victim in critical condition.  After interviews, police learned the shooting occurred at a residence in the 1000 block of Fountain Street and responded to the scene.  As the first officer arrived on scene, a man was detained exiting the residence who was in possession of a firearm, and he was taken into custody.  The man was identified as Joshua George.  There were several other individuals on the scene who witnessed the incident.

Officers investigating fireworks complaints were targets of firework mortars intentionally fired at officers and their vehicles clearly intending to injure officers or damage their vehicles.

Use of fireworks inside of the city limits is both dangerous and illegal.
