AUBURN, AL (WSFA) -

A suspect has been arrested in a weekend shooting that injured two people in Auburn.

Auburn police say Jaquavious Montrell Strickland, 21, was arrested Tuesday on a felony warrant for shooting into an occupied dwelling.

The shooting victims were discovered approximately 30 minutes apart Saturday. Investigators were called to the first scene just before 1 a.m. Saturday. 

Detectives arrived at the home in the 600 block of Spencer Avenue and found a 25-year-old female suffering from a single gunshot wound. She was taken to East Alabama Medical Center where she was treated and later released.

While working the first shooting, authorities were notified a half-hour later that a shooting victim had been transported by private vehicle to EAMC. That victim was identified as a 21-year-old male. Authorities say that victim remains in the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Further investigation showed a link between the shootings, and Strickland was developed as a suspect.

Anyone with information regarding his location is asked to call the Auburn Police Department as 334-501-3140 or the Tip Line at 334-246-1391.
