Update to the Death Investigation on Nelson Circle, Montevallo

On November 25, 2019, at approximately 12:00 PM, Shelby County 911 received a call about a possible shooting in the 100 block of Nelson Circle in unincorporated Shelby County, near the City of Montevallo. Deputies responded to the area and discovered Derius Marquis Fields ,24, of Montevallo, deceased from multiple gunshot wounds. Another person believed to be involved was transported to a local hospital and is currently receiving medical treatment. The investigation is still ongoing, but Shelby County investigators believe that the shooting was a result of an isolated argument between these two individuals, which escalated to violence.
