Coming Tuesday in The Star

Check out Tuesday's Anniston Star for these stories:

What affect did the storms on Sunday have around here? The storms dumped more than an inch of rain in Calhoun County and blew part of the roof off Red’s Catfish on Catfish Road in Mellow Valley in Clay County. Emergency officials in Randolph County reported widespread damage to outbuildings, sheds and some roofs. A weather service crew was scheduled to visit Randolph and Clay counties today to determine whether a tornado or straight-line winds caused the damage there. Andy Johns has this story.

Anniston police are searching for a man in his 40s identified as a suspect in an early Sunday morning homicide on the 300 block of K Street. A resident heard shots, walked outside to investigate, and found Jerry Lewis Turner, 54, of Anniston, on the ground, according to police reports. Calhoun County Coroner Pat Brown said Turner was pronounced dead at the scene around 5 a.m., but he stopped short of identifying the cause of death.
