Hoover Police investigating murder-suicide

Posted: Updated:

Hoover investigators are looking into an apparent murder-suicide. 

Police say it happened at a home at 2305 Queensview Road Tuesday, around 9:30 p.m.  Dispatcher got a 911 call reporting a man was being assaulted by a woman with a knife.  When officers arrived, they found Kimberly Jamison Ozburn, 39, lying in the floor near a bedroom. 

Reports indicate she suffered multiple stab wounds.  Jimmy Lee Frizzell, 55, was also found deceased.  Officers say the man had been shot in the bedroom.

The owner of the home was able to escape.  Kimberly Ozburn's mother told responding officers that she ran from the home when she realized an assault was occurring.

Investigators tell ABC 33/40 that while the crime scene and evidence are still being examined, it appears Frizell killed Ozburn and then shot himself.  They were known to be dating.  Earlier this year, Hoover officers responded to this address on a report of a verbal argument. The incident happened on February 21, but no violence occurred and no threats were made.
