Selma Police Deal with Violent Weekend

Selma police are investigating two shooting deaths in a city where a police officer was also shot and wounded.

Selma Police Chief Spencer Collier says officers were called around 10:30 p.m. Sunday to a shooting behind an elementary school. Collier says a man in his early 20s was found shot to death in a vehicle.

He says there is nothing to link the Sunday night shooting to the wounding of an officer or another shooting death earlier Sunday.

Twenty-seven-year-old Raven Carter was shot to death around 1:30 a.m. Sunday on a Selma street corner.

An officer leaving that scene was shot and wounded around 4 a.m. Sunday. Collier said it appears the officer will recover. The officer’s name has not been released.

State police are investigating.
