BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Authorities say a former police recruit in Alabama has been charged with murder.
Birmingham police Sgt. Bryan Shelton tells AL.com 21-year-old Arron Jamal Gaines is charged in the Friday afternoon killing of 20-year-old Dietrich "Dede" Boone after an apparent domestic dispute.
Gaines was a Birmingham Police Academy recruit who resigned in January. He had been accused of conduct violations and left before being terminated.
Shelton says Gaines had gone to Boone's home for a confrontation and carried a handgun when he chased Boone off his porch.
Gaines surrendered to police roughly an hour after the shooting.
Jail records say Gaines was charged Sunday and remained held Monday on a $125,000 bond. It is unclear if he has a lawyer.
