Ex-boyfriend sought in early-morning shooting of Tuscaloosa woman

Anthony Terrell Doss An early-morning shooting in Tuscaloosa left a woman injured, and now a search is underway for her ex-boyfriend.

Tuscaloosa police and Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit investigators responded about 2 a.m. to Sun Valley Apartments on East 26 th Avenue, said Capt. Gary Hood. Once on the scene, they learned a 50-year-old woman had been shot inside her apartment.

Witnesses told investigators the woman was standing at the door talking with her ex-boyfriend, 37-year-old Anthony Doss. The victim closed the door on Doss, and he then fired three shots through the closed door, hitting her.

The victim was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center for treatment and is expected to be OK. Doss fled the scene in a green Mercedes with the Alabama license plate number 63HT679.

Hood said an attempted murder warrant has been obtained against Doss. He may be armed with a .45-caliber handgun and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Anyone who sees Doss is cautioned against approaching him and instead asked to call their local law enforcement agency.
