Three people were shot in separate locations and a suspect was killed Saturday morning in Eufaula. 

At 7:54 a.m. officers received a report that an individual was shot at Level Acres Mobile Home Park.

Once they arrived on the scene, police confirmed that a 2-year-old girl had been shot in the leg and Demarco Rhymes, 35, of Eufaula was named as a suspect.

According to reports, Rhymes left Level Acres after shooting the 2-year-old and went to Davis Street where he shot a 42-year-old female. He then allegedly proceeded to Norman Street where a 39-year-old man received multiple gunshot wounds.

Eufaula Police officers first made contact with Rhymes near Zion Church where he fired shots at the officers. During the vehicle and foot pursuit, Rhymes continued to fire at the officers.

In order to stop the imminent deadly threat posed by Mr. Rhymes, the officers employed deadly force.
