In a startling turn of events, the home of Elba’s School Board President, Johnny Senn, was subjected to multiple gunshots, triggering an ongoing investigation by law enforcement agencies. The incident unfolded shortly after the contentious decision not to renew the contract of the Elba City Schools superintendent.

Reports indicate that Senn’s residence bore the brunt of the attack, with bullet holes peppering the property following the crucial vote at a special meeting held by the Elba City School Board. Fortunately, no injuries were reported in the aftermath of the shooting.

As the community grapples with the aftermath of this alarming event, authorities have yet to ascertain a motive or identify any suspects involved in the targeted shooting. In response to the heightened security concerns, law enforcement agencies have implemented increased patrols and surveillance measures across Elba.

The gravity of the situation has prompted the State Bureau of Investigation to assume control of the case, pledging thorough scrutiny to unravel the circumstances surrounding the incident and bring those responsible to justice.
