The man wanted for the shooting death of 72-year-old Kathleen Lundy of Huntsville, Alabama has been taken into custody in Tennessee.
Huntsville police confirm Warren Hardy was found in Whitwell, Tennessee on Sunday morning.
Police believe Hardy fatally shot Lundy at a home on Friday evening. Officials confirm there was no known relation between Lundy and Hardy.
Police said it started as a domestic violence situation between Hardy and his girlfriend that ended in the gated Morland Shores neighborhood in Huntsville, where the victim lived. Authorities say the reason they were in the neighborhood or how they gained access is not clear at this time; however, some neighbors say the gate is broken which could explain part of it.
Police say Hardy’s girlfriend left and he shot the victim at some point after that. They believe he stole her vehicle to try to pursue the girlfriend.
Hardy is now in custody in Marion County awaiting extradition to Alabama.
The president of the Morland Shores Homeowners Association in Huntsville said Lundy was a beloved member of the community and was a very active member of the association.
Neighbors say Lundy would help with their weekly neighborhood pool party, which is what she was apparently doing when the fatal incident took place.
