Here are the top stories in Mobile today:

  1. Investigators are still looking into the cause of the shooting, which happened Wednesday night around 9:15 p.m. in the 2000 block of Northwest Drive. Mobile police arrived at the scene to find Cedric Lynch in his vehicle suffering from a gunshot wound, which was later pronounced dead at the scene. Neighbor Ernest Parker says it’s the first time anything like this has happened there, as he heard the shots too close to home and went outside in chaos with a woman screaming over the incident. It’s still unclear what led to the shooting, but police are working on the case. (Fox 10 News)
