SPD Chief: ‘We do have a person of interest’ in last week’s murder of Hoover teen


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – The shooting death of a 17-year-old Hoover teen occurred over a week ago, and no new information has been released by authorities.

Last week in the Sylacauga Industrial Park, Casey Nicole Kizer, a female from Hoover, was shot and rushed to Coosa Valley Medical Center where she was later pronounced dead.

Sylacauga Police Chief Kelley Johnson told his department has a person of interest, but did not release a name. He said SPD is still collecting evidence – such as cell phones – and shuffling through interviews.

“We’re just staying busy putting things together,” Johnson said

Lastly, he said his department is waiting on forensic results, which could take “a while” before information is returned.
