Police have identified a local resident as the trigger man in Wednesday night's deadly drive-by shooting in Dothan.

The shooting sent shock waves through the city. It's the third in three weeks. Now, police are searching for the man they believe is responsible.

At 10PM Wednesday night, 39-year-old Enterprise resident Norris Mullins was talking with friends in the 500 block of Chickasaw Street in Dothan.

An unknown car drove by and five to seven gunshots rang out.

One of the .45 caliber bullets hit Mullins in the head. He died a few hours later.

Witnesses led police to Kali Gumbu Shabazz Jackson.

He is the person investigators say was the passenger who leaned out of the window and fired the fatal rounds.

Police issued a search warrant at Jackson’s home, located on Glanton Street, but they could not find him.

Authorities say if anyone spots Jackson, they should be alarmed, because this isn't the first shooting they believe he has been involved in.

“Due to the severity of this case, capital murder, it is also alleged that Mr. Jackson was involved in another shooting within the pass two weeks. He should be considered armed and dangerous,” said Corporal Frank Meredith of the Dothan Police Department.

Jackson is wanted for capital murder.

His lawyer called police Thursday night and told them Jackson would turn himself in Friday morning. However, Jackson never showed up.

A Crime Stoppers reward of up to $1,000 is being offered for any information leading to the arrest of Kali Jackson, or information leading to the driver's arrest.
