Enterprise Apartment Shooting Leaves Three Injured
A Brighton man is behind bars after allegedly shooting three people in the parking lot of Camelot Villa Apartments in Enterprise Thursday night.
A resident of the complex told News 4’s Blake Benberry, "I stayed on the floor. I turned off all my lights in the apartment."
"I heard several gun shots…people screaming," she continued.
The woman said when she heard the gun shots; she immediately grabbed her granddaughter and took to the floor for cover.
Moments after the shooting, a pool of blood remained.
"Dispute started in one central area and then as the gun shots came… everything spread out because people…were moving quickly to try and get away," said Sgt. Billy Haglund of Enterprise.
According to Sgt. Haglund, Devonta Lavar Tillis fired multiple shots at three people whose names are not being. The victims were transported by personal cars to nearby hospitals where they remain in stable condition. Tillis, who was arrested by Enterprise police shortly after the incident, remains in custody.
"A domestic issue…that's the root cause of the incident…that's the motive and that's the reason why the shooting occurred," said Haglund.
While the exact cause of the shooting is still unknown, a woman cleaning up blood from the apartment 25 stairway told News 4, “It was my brother's girlfriend being stupid,” when asked what happened.
Tillis is currently facing one count of attempted murder.
