Montgomery police say a man has been arrested in a Friday morning shooting on Hyundai Boulevard that left one dead.
Authorities responded about 7:12 a.m. to a report of a shooting victim in the 3500 block of South McGehee Place Drive, where they found Destiny Reynolds, 22, with a gunshot wound. Reynolds was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police said while there they took 21-year-old Gerald Wells Jr. of Montgomery into custody. They said they later determined that the shooting happened in the 700 block of Hyundai Boulevard, near Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama.
Police said Wells was charged with murder and taken to the Montgomery County Detention Facility, where he was being held on a bond of $1.5 million.
An HMMA spokesman said the shooting did not happen on the site of the plant itself or anywhere on property.
"Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama (HMMA) has been notified that a contract employee was fatally shot at an unknown location in Montgomery, Alabama," spokesman Robert Burns said in a statement. "Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of this employee.
"The Montgomery Police Department is investigating the incident and an HMMA team member may have been involved. HMMA will cooperate with local authorities if needed."
MPD said the investigation is ongoing and that no further information was immediately available. They're asking anyone with any information to call Crimestoppers at 334-215-STOP, the Secret Witness line at 334-625-4000, or MPD at 334-625-2831.
