The Progress says Shelton shot a woman named Deloise Odelle Woodson at her Altavista Avenue home on Sunday, March 19. As for Taylor, the Progress says he's wanted for March 10 shooting in the 900 block of Cherry Avenue. But what/who was shot, the Progress doesn't give a hint... at least not in the little news item in this morning's paper.
