This is the horrifying moment two women screamed ‘Oh my god’ and fled at the sound of scores of gunshots cops say were fired by an Alabama basketball star now charged with a woman’s murder.

Darius Miles, a 21-year-old Crimson Tide player, and Michael Lynn Davis, 20, were charged with capital murder on Sunday, after Jamea Harris, 23, was shot and killed in a car in the early hours of the morning.

Now, shocking footage has been posted on social media of the moment the gun was reportedly fired, with 11 shots heard loudly on a Ring doorbell camera.

At the moment the shots are fired, two women can be seen walking in front of the house, and they are left fleeing for their lives and shouting ‘Oh my god’ as the gunshots ring out.

The shots come in two bursts, and it was later confirmed by Tuscaloosa Police Captain Jack Kennedy that a gun was fired into the car carrying the victim, before the driver of that car fired back.

It is unclear which gunshots in the video were fired by each involved party, and how many each shooter fired. 

On Sunday, Miles was filmed in tears as he was led out of Tuscaloosa County Jail in handcuffs, as he called out ‘I swear I love you more than you can imagine’ as he was loaded into a waiting cop car.

Tuscaloosa Police Captain Jack Kennedy said that the shooting occurred early Sunday morning in the Strip off University Blvd, near campus.

‘At this time, it appears that the only motive was a minor altercation that these individuals had with the victim as they were out on The Strip,’ Kennedy said in a news conference Sunday evening. They didn’t have a previous relationship, he said.

He said the driver of another vehicle, in which Harris was a passenger, approached campus police near Bryant-Denny Stadium at about 1:45 a.m. saying that someone had shot into the vehicle, and he fired back.

The driver said that his return fire was in self defense and that he may have struck a suspect, who was then treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital.

According to AL.com, the shooting happened in the 400 Block of Grace Street off of University Boulevard, close to Bryant-Denny Stadium, where the Crimson Tide football team play in front of 100,000 fans.

Miles was a reserve on the fourth-ranked Crimson Tide team. Alabama had announced before Saturday’s game against LSU that he was out for the season with an ankle injury. 

Prior to that, he had been away from the team with a ‘personal matter’ and coach Nate Oats had said on December 28 that he ‘wasn’t sure how long he’ll be out.’

He went on to add: ‘We’re supporting him through it and trying to help him through it. That’s why he wasn’t on the bench tonight. It’s a personal matter, it’s not an injury and we’re not quite sure how long he’ll be out.’ 

He was back on the bench on Sunday, and watched the game alongside the team’s other players.

His bio has since been removed from the athletic department website and the university said that he ‘has been removed from campus’ and is no longer on the team.

‘The University of Alabama’s utmost priority is the safety and well-being of the campus community,’ a university statement said. ‘We are grieved by the incident that occurred near campus last night and extend our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and friends.’

Neither the driver of the other vehicle nor Harris nor Davis appeared to be affiliated with the university, Kennedy said.
