Montgomery, AL-- A tip is playing a big part in the investigation-- a possible connection between the Capitol shootings and an Alabama murder. It's still not official, but some investigators are jubilant.
“Certainly we are excited about the possibilities of clearing up a very serious crime right here in our own backyard," said Montgomery Co. Alabama Police Chief John Wilson.
One even leaking word they are positive they've captured the snipers. That would seem to put a cap on their number of victims at 13, but there may be two more.
Two people were shot last month at an Alabama liquor store. Apparently that's what a tipster said would be the key to solving the sniper shootings.
Kellie Adams is one of the two workers at an ABC store in Montgomery, Alabama who was shot. Officials investigating the area sniper shooting seized evidence from the Montgomery crime.
Kellie Adams goes back to the scene where it all happened about three weeks ago. It's the second time she's made this trip, because this is the first place she came after leaving the hospital.
Why? Because she says she still can’t believe someone shot her and a co-worker for no apparent reason. "The bullet went in right here, and basically see this swollen area, skirted across there and came out the front of my face."
She remembers standing outside the ABC store on Zelda Road, with her back to the street while her co-worker tried to lock the door. She said she heard nothing, saw no one, and then she suddenly felt like she has been electrocuted as she fell to the ground.
Her co-worker was shot and killed. "Just mad that it happened,” Adams said. “I'm mad that Claudine got killed. I'm just sick over it." As part of her recovery she must walk everyday. Her husband of three years exercises with her. And not only is that part of her life different, but she says she is now more open about other parts of her life as she is about her wounds.
"I don't mind people looking at me,” Adams said. “I don't mind telling people what happened. It kind of gives them hope that bad things happen to good people but you can get over it."
And she is getting over it in more ways than one. She seems to have taken a horrible experience and grown from it because she says she's not the same person.
"I am more honest with people more open. I talk a lot more about my feelings. If I’m mad, i get mad. If I’m sad, I cry."
And she and her husband have cried a lot. Tears of sadness and tears of joy, because she does consider herself fortunate. "Just knowing that I could have died,” Adams said. “Just knowing the ‘what if’s.’ I just don't take things for granted any more, and that's a feeling I've never had, and it feels really good."
