HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 40-year-old woman was shot and killed at a Hoover apartment complex when a family argument escalated.

Tawanda Denise Thomas was pronounced dead Sunday shortly after being taken to a Birmingham hospital.

The Hoover Police Department said a 23-year-old family member was taken into custody for questioning and is being held at the Hoover jail pending formal charges.

Police were investigating a hang-up 911 call from an apartment at Alpine Village Apartments when they found Thomas suffering from a gunshot wound.

Investigators suspect that a family argument escalated and led to the shooting.
