ARDMORE, Ala. (WAFF) - The Limestone County Sheriff’s Office confirms there was another deadly shooting in Ardmore Thursday night.
Investigators were called to a home off Highway 251 at about 7:30 p.m. They found the 74-year-old male victim lying in the yard with multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies say he was dead at the scene.
Deputies later identified the victim as Bruce Cosman.
Investigators say the Cosman’s wife stated they heard noises out back, so her husband went to check. She then heard gunshots.
The victim’s name has not been released.
Deputies say the suspect possibly fled on foot. Tracking dogs were brought in. They have not yet identified the suspect or suspects.
It’s unclear why the suspect(s) were in the victim’s backyard.
This is Ardmore’s second fatal shooting this week. A 72-year-old woman was found murdered early Tuesday.
Authorities cleared the scene of the shooting late Thursday night, but will return to the scene Friday morning.
The sheriff’s office tells WAFF the victim had lived in the home for 6 months, and had been in the Ardmore area for roughly two years.
