DAILYKENN.com -- Tapero Corlene Johnson, 27, and Marquisha Annissa Tyson, 28, were arrested after the fatal shooting death of a police officer in Alabama.
They are charged with capital murder and held without bond in the slaying of Moody, Ala. police Sgt. Stephen Williams.
Williams was 50 years old and the father of two. He had served as a police officer for 23 years.
Moody is 94.09% white and 3.81% black, according to wikipedia.com and should be a safe haven from black violence. It isn't.

The Moody police officer killed overnight found himself facing a barrage of gunfire soon after arriving at a Moody motel according to the St. Clair County Sheriff.
Sheriff Billy Murray said multiple weapons were recovered from the Super 8 motel where Sgt. Stephen Williams was killed. Murray said Williams and a police trainee were called by dispatch to the motel.

The shooting happened shortly before 9:30 p.m. Tuesday at the motel on Moody Parkway. A medical helicopter was sent for Williams, but the officer was instead taken by ambulance to UAB Hospital. Authorities have not provided a detailed account on what prompted the 911 call or the barrage of gunfire that ensued with Williams, the night-shift supervisor, and other officers arrived.
Amar Fouda just moved into the Super 8 on U.S. 411. He said it was about 9:25 when he heard a lot of noise in Room 214, which is directly next to his room.
“I heard like an AK-47,’’ he said. Fouda said he ran into the bathroom and hid in the tub.
When he saw blue lights come on the scene, he looked outside. “I saw one of the officers, he was down,’’ Fouda said.
He said he didn’t know why police were at the motel but said his neighbors “had been making a lot of noise.”
