CULLMAN, AL (WAFF) -

Two men were killed in a murder-suicide in Cullman that happened Monday night.

Neighbors reported they heard shots fired sometime after 8 p.m. Cullman Police said they found two shot men at a home around 9 p.m.

Investigators said 54-year-old Terry Bailey shot 42-year-old David Abney and then killed himself.

Officers found Abney dead from gunshot wounds in the yard at a home on 3rd Street in Cullman. They said they found Bailey in a vehicle with a self inflicted gun shot wound.

Police said the men knew each other, and an apparent feud led to this deadly shooting. They said one Bailey shot the Abney at least four times before turning the gun on himself

Emergency workers rushed him to the hospital where he later died.

Cullman's assistant police chief Craig Green said both men lived in Cullman and were visiting the home where this shooting happened.

"It's not a cause for alarm for the neighborhood," said Green. "This was some sort of dispute between these two gentlemen and time will help us determine what that dispute was."

Police said this shooting is rare for Cullman. The assistant chief said this is the first or second homicide so far this year in the city.
