Tuscaloosa news, Alabama news.

Alabama authorities are investigating a fatal shooting that left an 18-year-old woman dead inside a car over the weekend.

Elexis Lashelle McCool was found unresponsive in the backseat of a car on Sunday. Authorities allege that two teenagers are involved in her death. A 14-year-old was charged with murder while a 15-year-old was charged with first-degree theft, abuse of a corpse and obstructing governmental operation. Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit Capt. Kip Hart told local news reporters that the teens' identities will not be released immediately because of their young ages.

The two suspects remain at a juvenile detention center while awaiting their hearings, according to Capt. Hart.
