AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

The Auburn Police Division has arrested 19-year-old Marcus K. Woody and 20-year-old Najee C. Brooks, both of Auburn, on felony warrants for assault second degree.  

Auburn Police responded to a shots fired call at a residence in the 600 block of Byrd Street at approximately 4:43 p.m. Monday March 17. Once officers arrived on the scene they located a 23-year-old male victim suffering from a single gunshot wound.
