MOBILE, Ala. - Mobile police have arrested Myles Xavier Smith for the shooting death of a 55-year-old woman named Dawn Lee.
The crime happened outside her home in the Onderdonk housing community off Shelton Beach Road. News 5 spoke with a woman who called police minutes after the shooting happened.
Carrie Hudson says it was around 3 o'clock Wednesday morning when a neighbor woke her up. "He said Dawn been shot. He says I heard a gun shot and when I came to the door she was laying in the street," Hudson said.
Although Lee's front door is taped with a warning sign that reads "Beware of Gun," Hudson says she doesn't know why Lee was targeted. "She's a nice lady. I don't even know why she was out at three in the morning," she said.
