The city of Birmingham recorded its first homicide of 2016 less than three hours into the new year.

Local media outlets report that police were called to a house in southwest Birmingham at 2:30 a.m. on Friday. Authorities indicate a man at the scene told them that he mistakenly shot a 33-year-old female  because she refused to leave his house.

Police have not released the man's name. They further stated that he would be held and placed on a 48-hour hold while they continue to investigate the case.
