A lady who purported to be stuck in Alabama fatally shot a 22-year-old.
According to the authorities, Adam Simjee and his girlfriend Mikayla Paulus were forced into the woods under threat of gunfire.
The woman, according to police, may be a member of a potentially dangerous gang that calls a forest “base camp” home.
A 22-year-old college student was tragically shot after he attempted to assist a lady who held him at gunpoint into the woods in an Alabama national forest and pretended to be lost.
According to a statement from the Clay County Sheriff’s Office published on WBRC, Adam Simjee and his girlfriend Mikayla Paulus were driving in the Talladega National Forest on August 14 when a woman later identified as Yamine Hider flagged them over to assist her in starting her automobile.
Simjee and Paulus, students at the University of Central Florida, were ordered to walk into the woods by Hider after he brandished a gun on them, according to the sheriff’s office.
There was a “exchange of gunfire” after Simjee was able to defend himself by pulling a gun from his pocket. Simjee passed away at the site despite Paulas’ efforts to provide CPR, according to the sheriff’s office. Hider was taken to the hospital after suffering numerous gunshot wounds. In the event, Paulas wasn’t struck physically.
According to the Sheriff’s office, Paulas observed a second woman, subsequently identified as Krystal Diane Pinkins, standing in the woods and observing the occurrence. Pinkins apparently yelled out to Hider for assistance but fled.
According to a statement from the sheriff’s office, authorities claimed they had learned the two women might be a part of a gang of persons “living off the grid” who might be armed and aggressive in the national forest. About half a mile from the shooting, a search team discovered a “base camp,” but only Pinkins and her 5-year-old child were located there.
When police attempted to apprehend Pinkins, the child allegedly fled from the woods while carrying a loaded shotgun.
The child was instructed by law enforcement to put the shotgun down, but instead of complying, the child carried the weapon to the female before setting it down, according to the Sheriff’s office.
According to The Gadsen Times, the camp has been given to park law enforcement, who will take it down.
The mother of Paulus, Heather Lambert, told WBRC that her sons had claimed to be attempting to live off the grid. They attempted to live off the grid in the woods.
Due to Clay County District Court Judge David Law’s gag order, the Clay County Sheriff’s office withheld any further updates on the case. To ensure Pinkins has the “capacity to receive a fair trial,” the ruling prohibits all parties from discussing the issue in public.
The sheriff’s office was also obliged by the court order to take down all posts on this case from its social media accounts.
Paulas declared in a Facebook post that she wouldn’t be discussing the subject. Paulas stated in a previous post that Simjee had been laid to rest.
“I’m sure I’ll run into him in the next life. He was and will always be my soul mate, “Paulus composed.
