An Alabama teen has been charged in connection with the deaths of two men in Anniston who shot each other, police say.

Anniston police on Wednesday announced the arrest of 18-year-old Makotrick L. Ball. Ball is charged with murder in the Monday deaths of 43-year-old Carlos Miller and 21-year-old Charrell Brown.

Officers were dispatched at 9:45 p.m. to the 5100 block of McClellan Boulevard on a call of shots fired.

When they arrived at the location, they found Miller suffering from a gunshot wound. Miller was taken to Northeast Alabama Regional Medical Center where he died a short time later.

While officers were on the McClellan Boulevard scene, they were notified another gunshot victim had shown up at Stringfellow Memorial Hospital.

That victim, Brown, also was pronounced dead.

Investigators determined that Miller and Brown shot each other.

Lt. Tim Suits said Ball was present at, and involved in, the deadly incident. No additional details about that involvement are being released at this time.

The investigation is ongoing, and more arrests could be made. Anyone with additional information is asked to call Anniston police.
