SELMA, AL (WSFA) -

Police have charged two men with murder after a physical altercation.

Selma Police say around 8:00 p.m. Thursday they responded to the 1400 block of Green Street on a call about a gunshot victim.

Upon arrival police found a male victim in his early twenties dead from multiple gunshot wounds.

After further investigation police determined that a fight between the victim and the two suspects, 19-year-old Javonte Anderson and 18-year-old Davaris Mendenhall, had resulted in a chase which led to gunfire.

Investigators say the fight stemmed from a conversation about the mother of Mr. Mendenhall's child. The woman is currently expecting a child with the victim's brother.

Both Mendenhall and Anderson have been charged with murder and are currently being held at the Dallas County Jail with a $1,000,000 bond.
