A veteran Birmingham police detective was arrested for killing her girlfriend who was also having an affair with a male Birmingham police detective.
Police responded to Germania Park around 11:51 p.m. Friday after the city’s gunshot detection system, ShotSpotter, alerted them to shots fired in the park near Pearson Avenue.
According to news reports, Alfreda Fluker, 39, walked up to the passenger side door of the patrol car and shot Kanisha Nicole Fuller multiple times through the window.
Fuller, 43, was sitting in the parked car with an unidentified male police detective who did not return fire.
Fuller was rushed to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
According to law enforcement website LEOaffairs.com, Fluker was in a relationship with Fuller and shot her after finding out she was also having an affair with the male police detective.
Fluker was taken into custody at her West Birmingham home just before 7 a.m. on Saturday.
The police chief described the love triangle as “something that’s been going on for a little while, but without our knowledge.”
Fluker, who was off-duty at the time of the shooting, had been a police detective with the Birmingham Police Department’s Crime Reduction Team for 15 years.
Initial reports stated Fluker and Fuller were both involved with the male police detective.
According to Fuller’s Facebook page, she was the manager of a Birmingham IHOP and the mother of a teenage son.
Fluker is being held without bond in the Jefferson County Jail. She faces multiple charges, including shooting into an occupied vehicle and capital murder.
