Darius Miles, an Alabama basketball player, was charged with first-degree murder for a deadly shooting on the Strip in Tuscaloosa before dawn. One person died. The other person accused of capital murder is Darius Miles. The other person charged with capital murder is also a basketball player at the University of Alabama.
On Saturday, it was disclosed that the junior forward had suffered an ankle injury that would prevent him from playing again this year.
A little over 24 hours after the event in question had place, law enforcement officers located Miles, placed him in handcuffs, and then took him to the Tuscaloosa County Jail.
During a perp walk, 21-year-old Miles seemed to be crying and repeatedly told a person who was standing outside the Tuscaloosa County Jail that he loved them and that he loved them more than they could ever comprehend. It looked as if Miles was fighting back the tears as well.
Jamea Jonae Harris, 23, of Birmingham, was murdered by Michael Lynn Davis, 20, of Maryland, and Miles, of Washington, DC. Miles is from Washington, DC, and Michael Lynn Davis is from Maryland. Miles was reared in DC, whereas Michael Lynn Davis is from Maryland.
The incident with the gunshot took place on the Strip.
Neither Davis nor Harris had any ties to the University of any kind.
At around 1:45 in the am on Sunday, police officers from Tuscaloosa and the University of Alabama were called to the Walk of Champions at Bryant Denny Stadium in response to a gunshot.
A car had stopped there after seeing a vehicle belonging to the University of Alabama Police.
What had happened to Darius Miles?
According to Captain Jack Kennedy of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, Harris was found dead inside the car.
The driver, who has not been recognized at this time, informed the police that gunshots had been directed at their car. The driver said that he had fired back in self-defence and may have hit one of the suspects in the process.
The inquiry revealed that the occurrence took place in the 400 block of Grace Street, which is accessible from University Boulevard. This information was gleaned from the results of the investigation.
Kennedy said that they were able to identify two individuals after interviewing many witnesses and studying video security footage. Both were tracked down and given an interview.
Kennedy said that it was discovered that one of the suspects had, in fact, been wounded by a gunshot but that the wound was not considered to be life-threatening.
Before the game, the school announced his season-long absence due to a preseason ankle injury. He played six games this season before focusing on ankle recovery.
What happened to his website?
Miles’ profile on Alabama’s athletics website returned a 404 error.
As a sophomore, he started two games.
Alabama coach Nate Oats said Miles was gone “with a personal problem” on Dec. 28. After Alabama defeated Mississippi State in Starkville, Oats stated, “We’re not sure how long he’ll be out. “We’re helping him through it. He wasn’t substituted tonight. It’s personal, not an injury, and we don’t know how long he’ll be out.” Miles returned to the bench Saturday and celebrated the 40-point victory against LSU with their teammates.
