Dangelo Dorsey Kills 2 in String of Shootings, Carjackings
According to TBI agents, it all started at about 9:30 am on I-24 in Coffee County when 29-year-old Dorsey, DOB 2-2-91, opened fire at a vehicle traveling westbound on Interstate 24 near Beechgrove in Coffee County. The shooting resulted in one man’s death and another woman’s injury inside the vehicle.
Traffic stopped after the shooting, and Dorsey then tried to find a car to flee in, TBI said.
He attempted to carjack a woman, and when he couldn’t get in, he started shooting, striking the woman in the hand and hitting a nearby truck driver in the face. Both will recover soon.
Dorsey then carjacked a Ford Mustang with a man and a woman inside. He forced them to drive him to their home where he switched vehicles to a blue Toyota Rav4.
There he took two guns and then forced the man and woman to accompany him.
Later, Dorsey shot the male hostage and dumped his body near mile marker 111 on I-24 in Coffee County.
