“Leads and tips are being followed up daily by investigators relating to this case and the whereabouts of Thomas and Crook,” said Bay Minette Police Chief Al Tolbert in an updated release issued Friday.

According to a release issued late Monday, BMPD responded to shots fired at approximately 7:56 p.m. Monday and found a male subject with a gunshot wound to the chest and leg. The subject, who has been identified as Anthony J. Williams, was taken to USA Medical Center by ambulance, where he is listed in serious but stable condition.

He was picked up again in September on charges of failure by a felon to register a change of address. After spending two nights in jail, he was released on the third day on a $500 bond.

“Thomas holds active felony warrants for his arrest for assault 1st, felon in possession of firearm, and attempting to elude,” according to the release. “Thomas’ last known address is on South Hoyle Avenue in Bay Minette.

“Crook is also known to be armed and dangerous. Crook’s last known address is Abernathy Avenue in Bay Minette."
