Huntsville Police charged 18-year-old Joseph Earls with capital murder in connection with the Tuesday night shooting on Hillwood Drive.

The victim, identified as 19-year-old Samantha Coyner, died of her injuries.

According the Huntsville Police, officers responded to a call of a shooting in progress at Hillwood Dr. at Chicamauga Trail. When they arrived, they found Samantha Coyner laying in the road. She was taken to Huntsville Hospital in critical condition, where she dies Wednesday afternoon.

Lt. Michael Johnson with HPD says that witnesses say the two were attempting a drug transaction but left before completing the transaction. The offenders followed Ms. Coyner and the witnesses in a maroon Chevy Malibu to the intersection of Hillwood and Chicamuaga Trail. When the witnesses got out of the vehicle to confront the offenders, someone from inside of the Malibu started to shoot at them.

Ms. Coyner attempted to drive off but was shot while in the vehicle. The offenders were located a short time later by officers at 3318 Bob Wallace Ave.

Huntsville police have made another arrest in the murder of Samantha Coyner.

Jaylen Draper
was arrested Tuesday night and charged with capital murder.

Joseph Earls also has been charged with capital murder in the case. A preliminary hearing for him was held May 8. (Read more here)

At that hearing, Huntsville Police Department investigator David Mullins testified that Coyner, her boyfriend Corey Swann and their friend Joshua Linley met a car containing four men at the Circle K on South Parkway to do a drug deal.

Mullins said Earls, Draper, Nicholas Lopez and Jared Waldrop were in the other car. Lopez approached Coyner and her boyfriend with fake $100 bills, Mullins said, so the two said the deal was off. Coyner’s vehicle was followed by the one with Lopez, Earls and the others. They stopped at Hillwood Drive and Chicamauga Trail. A shooting followed in which Coyner was killed. Eleven shell casings were recovered.
