A woman has been charged with murder after shooting another woman at an Iron Bowl watch party in Hoover on Saturday.
Police have identified the suspect as Adrian Laroze Briskey, a 28-year-old from Birmingham. She is accused of fatally shooting Michelle Lacette Shepherd, a 36-year-old mother of three from Birmingham.
Police say both women were attending an Iron Bowl party at the Summercase at Riverchase apartment complex in Hoover on Saturday, Nov. 30. They did not know each other prior to the party, according to officials.
Authorities say Briskey and Shepherd got into an argument after the game and the fight moved into the parking lot near the 1600 building. Briskey allegedly shot Shepherd with a small caliber handgun just after 7 p.m. Witnesses say Shepherd was shot three times.
Shepherd died in the parking lot and Briskey was taken into custody at the scene. Briskey is in the process of being transferred from the Hoover City Jail to the Shelby County Jail. Her bond is set at $75,000.
Hoover Police Detectives met with the Shelby County District Attorney on Monday to present the facts of the case. Afterwards a murder warrant was issued for Briskey.
Friends say Shepherd was a neutral fan when it came to the Iron Bowl, but was an avid fan of the Miami Heat basketball team. Her sister says that she leaves behind three children, ages 8, 6 and 4.
