Police have arrested 24-year-old Owen Ladon Wallace for manslaughter in connection to the death of 17-year-old Casey Nicole Kizer of Hoover.

According to police, Kizer and a group of friends went to Fleetwood Metal Industries on July 25, 2018 with a group of friends to meet with Wallace, who worked there. Then a fight broke out between Wallace and a man in Kizer’s vehicle, leading to a gunshot which struck Kizer.

Kizer was transported to Coosa Valley Medical center by her group of friends, police say, where she later died from her injuries.

Wallace was arrested and taken to the Talladega County Jail where he’s being held on a $25,000 bond.
