DOTHAN: Dothan police are looking for a 34-year-old man charged with attempted murder for his alleged role in a shooting at a graduation party last year that left two people injured, including one critically with a gunshot wound to the head.
Police investigators are still looking for Kamal Tuheed Russaw. He is wanted by Dothan police investigators on two pending felony attempted murder charges.
Russaw has been on the run for almost ten months and is the only remaining suspect in the murders that is still at large
All three of the other suspects, including Russaw’s cousin, 22-year-old Kamaluddeen Raheem have already been arrested for this crime.
A jury convicted Kamaluddeen Russaw last week of two felony attempted murder charges. He will be sentenced in April.
Carlenius Keon Sandifer recently received a 60-year prison sentence for his involvement in the shooting. A jury convicted him of two lesser assault charges, which included first-degree assault and second-degree assault. But Sandifer also had a prior felony arson conviction on his record.
Brandon Layfatte Jones pleaded guilty to two similar assault charges. But he received a 15-year sentence as part of the plea agreement.
If you recall the shooting occurred after a man at the party apparently told a motorist to slow down. After a conversation occurred with a man in the yard, a beer can was thrown and then shots were fired.
About 45 minutes later another shooting took place, which left two people wounded, including one man shot in the head and another in the arm.
Police were able to catch three of the four people involved and they are confident they will catch Kamal Tuheed Russaw.
