Rivers Arrest

Alric Christopher Rivers

An arrest has been made in connection with a shooting in Dothan last week. Police say Alric Rivers turned himself in at the Ozark Police Department. He is facing burglary and attempted murder charges.

A woman was shot in the leg in her home on Roebuck Street in Dothan around 10:45 a.m. Friday. Police say her boyfriend, Alric Rivers, allegedly broke into the house and was waiting for her when she came home.

He also allegedly threatened to take the woman's children from two area schools by force if necessary.

Police locked down Selma Street Elementary and Pass Academy as a precaution, but Rivers disappeared until he turned himself in Monday.
