Original story is here:

A manhunt continues for a 58-year-old north Alabama man sought in the murders of three people and the wounding of a fourth.

Authorities on Monday identified the wanted man as Carson Ray Peters.

Decatur police responded just before 7 p.m. Sunday to a report of gunshots on Flint Creek Private Drive in the Danville area. When officers arrived at the home, they found three people dead on the scene. The fourth victim was airlifted to a hospital.

Decatur police spokeswoman Emme Long said the triple homicide is domestic-related. Authorities identified the victims as: Teresa Lynn Peters, 54, of Danville; Tammy Renee Smith, 50, of Danville, and James Edward Miller, 55, of Lacey’s Springs.

The search for Peters – now charged with three counts of capital murder – was immediately launched in the areas around Flint Creek Private Drive, including Neel School Road and Kirby Bridge Road. The Morgan County Sheriff’s Office and Priceville police joined Decatur police in the search, as did the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s helicopter.

Authorities said Peters should be considered armed and dangerous. The public is cautioned not to approach him but to call 911 immediately.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Det. Sean Mukaddam at 256-341-4167 or via email at [email protected].
