Authorities have released the name of a woman was found slain inside a southwest Birmingham home early Sunday.
The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office Monday identified the victim as Timira Marchelle Pullom. She was 28.
West Precinct officers were dispatched at 12:45 a.m. Sunday to a report of a person shot at a residence in the 3700 block of Pine Avenue S.W.
Police entered the home and found Pullom unresponsive inside.
The coroner’s office said the shooting happened at 11:24 p.m. Saturday. Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service pronounced her dead on the scene at 1:10 a.m. Sunday.
Authorities said Pullom was killed in a domestic incident.
A suspect was taken into custody Sunday and is being held in the Birmingham City Jail pending formal charges.
Pullom is the city’s 92nd homicide this year. Of those, one was an officer-involved shooting by an outside law enforcement agency and seven others have been ruled justifiable and therefore aren’t deemed criminal.
In all of Jefferson County, there have been 131 homicides including the 92 in Birmingham.
