25-year-old Birmingham man identified as city’s 44th homicide victim this year

Corderrius Rashad Henderson

Authorities have released the name of a man found shot to death early Friday outside a southwest Birmingham apartment complex.

Birmingham police identified the victim as Corderrius Rashad Henderson. He was 25 and lived in the Deer Park apartment complex near where he was found.

West Precinct officers responded about 5:45 a.m. to the 100 block of 17th Street S.W. after Shot Spotter – the city’s gunfire detection system – alerted them to shots fired in the area. Once they arrived on the scene, they found Henderson wounded on the ground. He was pronounced dead on the scene by Birmingham Fire and Rescue Service.

One slain Friday in southwest Birmingham

Birmingham police received the first call about the incident from the city’s ShotSpotter system.

Through the day, Birmingham police radios broadcast a suspect description of three masked men. As of Friday afternoon, no one had been arrested.

Henderson is Birmingham’s 44th homicide victim of 2019. Of those, at least seven have been ruled justifiable and therefore are not deemed criminal by the Birmingham Police Department. In all of Jefferson County, there have been 64 homicides, including the 44 in Birmingham.

Anyone with information on Henderson’s slaying is asked to call Birmingham police homicide investigators at 205-254-1764 or Crime Stoppers at 205-254-7777.
