MADISON, AL (WAFF) - Madison police are investigating a homicide after a body was found at Mountain Lodge Apartments on Wednesday morning.
Investigators and emergency crews were called to the complex on Shelton Road around 10:30 a.m.
The victim was found shot multiple times in the chest. Investigators identified the victim as 42-year-old Arun Noble of Athens, who they said crawled from one side of the parking lot to the other, where he died.
Residents who saw the body said they didn't recognize the man and don't believe he lived there, though they saw Noble there a lot.
Nicole Wages had just buckled her infant daughter into her car when she discovered the body. She said she is still recovering from the shock.
"I was hysterical; I didn't know what to do," Wages said. "I wanted to make sure he was okay, in a way, but he wasn't... He wasn't breathing, there were no chest movements. His eyes were wide open. Hands - they had blood on them, there was blood on the vehicle he was behind."
Police are looking for two men for questioning in the case, after witnesses reported seeing the two men sitting in a car in the parking lot shortly before the shooting. Witnesses said the car didn't look familiar.
Officials are asking the public to be on the lookout for two men. possibly in their 20s, wearing hoodies. One of the suspects may have been dressed in all red.
Police have learned the vehicle they believe the men were driving is a white, four-door 1997 Acura with Alabama license plate #44AZ729.
"We just need your help," said Madison Police Chief Larry Muncey. "Any information that would lead to their whereabouts would be greatly appreciated. At this point, I say again, they are just persons of interest, but they should be considered potentially armed and dangerous."
Anyone with information about the shooting should call the Madison Police Department.
