DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

Decatur Police are investigating a deadly overnight shooting as a murder case.

Investigators said 33-year-old Houston Glenn Blackwood was shot and killed at his home on Chestnut Street in Southeast Decatur around 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

Officers responded to the home upon hearing reports of gunshots and found Blackwood shot multiple times. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The case has been ruled a homicide, and the investigation is ongoing. No arrests have been made.

Friends and family said they don't know who could have shot Blackwood, whom they referred to as Glenn.

"It hurts knowing that he's gone. He was a good person. Right now we have no clue who did it. We're just hoping we get justice for what happened," said Justin Flick, Blackwood's brother-in-law.

Relatives said Blackwood worked as a tattoo artist and was a musician. He was also a father to a four-year-old son named Kashus.

They said Blackwood was separated from his wife, Miranda, who was not home at the time of the shooting. Blackwood's mother, Janice, said the couple was making plans to move back together.

Blackwood's mother, who lives in the same building where the shooting happened, said her son was shot in the head, chest, and twice in the stomach.

Investigators urge anyone with information on this case to call Decatur Police at 256-341-4660.
