As Mobile Police continue to investigate a Tuesday morning double homicide, a local community leader has confirmed that one of the victims is his son.

Although, police officials have not released any names, Dr. Reginald Crenshaw of the Mobile County School Board confirmed Wednesday afternoon his 31-year-old son Reginald Crenshaw, Jr., was one of the victims in the shooting.

Police responded to shots fired at a home on the 400 block of East Gulfwood Drive around 12:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Inside the home, officers found the bodies of Crenshaw, Jr., and another man, yet to be identified.

In a between between city officials later Tuesday morning, former Mobile Police Chief and Mobile City Executive Director of Public Safety James Barber addressed that the shooting did not “look random.” 

“We are treating it as a double homicide,” Barber said. “It appears there were multiple shooters.”

Update 3:51 p.m.: Mobile Police officials identify 28-year-old Brandon Cadwell as second victim.
