17 people hurt in Tuscaloosa, Ala., bar shooting


TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — A gunman who opened fire outside a crowded bar has wounded 17 people in Tuscaloosa, the home of the University of Alabama.

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson told The Associated Press that the gunman fired first through a window, then shot at people outside as they fled the bar. He said the gunman never went inside during the assault early Tuesday.

Hospital spokesman Brad Fisher said 17 people were being treated at DCH Regional Medical Center

Four of the victims have been admitted to the hospital, and two of them were receiving critical care, Fisher said. It wasn’t immediately known whether all the injuries were from gunfire, he said.

Police were still searching for a suspect and released surveillance video of a man they called the suspect..
