Residents of Duck Hill were shaken Friday night when a young woman was found shot to death in her home in the 700 block of Melissa Circle. Shayla Miers, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene by Montgomery County Assistant Coroner James Wagner.
Montgomery County Sheriff Jerry “Bubba” Nix said Miers had been shot multiple times.
Nix said the Miers’ mother made the grim discovery.
“Her mother came in the house and found her around 6:30 on the living room floor,” he said.
Nix said Miers lived in the home with her parents and her 5-year-old daughter.
