Shortly after 1:00 AM today, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Deputies were dispatched to the 500 block of Osceola Drive in Fairfield to investigate a shooting that had occurred between family members. Ladiamonique Simmons, a 29-year-old female, had been shot and was transported to a local hospital by Birmingham Fire and Rescue. She was pronounced deceased soon after her arrival there.
The other family member involved in the altercation left the residence, but did call and report the shooting to law enforcement. He advised that he would be waiting at a nearby convenience store where deputies were able to make contact with him. He and other witnesses have been fully cooperating with the investigation.
Jefferson County Sheriff’s deputies will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding this shooting and will be presenting the case to the District Attorney’s Office for review.
