The family of a man shot to death in Birmingham’s Kingston community earlier this week is searching for answers, and justice, in his killing.
Douglas Paige, a 34-year-old father of a young son, was slain about 11:15 a.m. Monday. Birmingham police responded to the 4400 block of Ninth Avenue North because Shot Spotter indicated gunfire in the area. While they were en route, they received another call of a person shot.
Paige was found unresponsive inside his vehicle and pronounced dead on the scene at 11:20 a.m. Police said the preliminary investigation showed that there was an altercation between four people, including Paige. The victim retreated to his car when someone fired shots into the sedan. At least two shots were fired.
