Homicide Investigation

The Birmingham Police Department is conducting a homicide investigation. The incident occurred on Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

The victim has been identified as:

Jeremy Andrews, (33), B/M, of Birmingham, Alabama.

Just after 8:20 a.m., East Precinct officers were dispatched on report of a Person Shot at a residence in the 7800 Block of 7th Court South.

Officers arrived on the scene and then entered the residence when they discovered the victim lying unresponsive suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

Birmingham Fire and Rescue personnel arrived on the scene and pronounced the victim deceased.

The preliminary investigation suggests an adult female and an adult male (suspect) were involved in a verbal domestic disturbance argument.

The victim came over to the residence and then was involved in a physical altercation with the suspect. The suspect shot the victim.

NOTE: We believe both the victim and the suspect were armed.  

Officers transported the suspect from the scene to BPD Headquarters. The suspect was then booked into the Birmingham City Jail under a 48-Hour Felony Extension for Murder.

This is Birmingham’s 17th murder investigation of 2024 with 1 justifiable death ruling.

The Birmingham Police Department adheres to FBI Uniform Crime Reporting guidelines set for all law enforcement agencies across the United States. FBI Uniform Crime Reporting guidelines do not require law enforcement agencies to include justifiable death investigations in the total homicide investigations counts.

**The information is based on a preliminary and ongoing investigation, which continues to evolve as investigators interview witnesses, review physical and electronic records, and analyze forensic evidence.
