Homicide Investigation

The Birmingham Police Department reports that detectives are investigating a homicide.  The incident took place on Wednesday, May 4, 2011, at approximately 11:35 p.m. at 2125 47th Street Ensley.

The victim has been identified as:  Gerronda Hill, B/F, 30, of Birmingham, Alabama.

Officers from the West Precinct responded to the incident location to investigate a report of a domestic assault.  Officers arrived to find the victim inside her vehicle unresponsive and suffering from stab wounds.  Birmingham Fire and Rescue arrived and transported the victim to U.A.B. Hospital where staff later pronounced her deceased.

Officers received information that the victim arrived home with her two children to find the suspect inside her residence.  Officers also learned the suspect began assaulting the victim as she entered her home.  The victim was able to make her way from the residence into her vehicle to escape the assault.  Officers located the suspect a short time later and took him into custody without incident.  The suspect’s identity will be released pending completion of warrant procedures.

If there is anyone who has information pertaining to the case, they are encouraged to contact the B.P.D. Homicide Unit at 254-1764 or Crime Stopper @ 254-7777.
