Dothan Police Chief Steve Parrish said units responded to the Fairfield Inn on Ross Clark Circle in the early morning hours. Parrish said the shooting was a domestic related incident and a man shot the woman twice.

Thinking the man was inside the pair’s hotel room, Parrish said a tactical team cleared the room. Several other rooms were evacuated. The suspect was not found inside the room and remained at large for most of the day.

Following his arrest, WTVY reports Fearington was charged with attempted murder and discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling.
