TUSCOLA COUNTY: ‘AVERAGE CATCHER’ SUSPECTED WITH CATCHING STICKER FOR GAMES
TUSCALOOSA COUNTY, Ala.
— A suspect in a triple shooting was arrested in Alabama after a shooting that left three dead and a suspect injured on Thursday night.
Sheriff’s deputies in Tuscaloosa County say they are searching for a suspect in the shooting of a man in his 20s, and an alleged gunman who shot at another man in a nearby home.
The man was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
The suspect was taken into custody in Tuscolas County.
A person who identified himself as the victim’s father called police to report the shooting and called deputies when he learned the suspect had been shot.
He said the suspect was a “very good person” who worked for a contractor and had recently moved into a home.
He was working with a family member who was also home.
The father said the family had a daughter, but they had not seen her in a long time.
He told deputies that the victim was a very good person, but he had recently been moving into a house.
The victim’s family did not want to talk to reporters.
The shooting happened around 9:40 p.m. at a home on Lake City Drive in Trescott.
The victims were a 19-year-old man, an 18-year, and a 23-year old man, according to the Tuscahotas County Sheriff’s Office.
The victim’s mother told AL.com that her son worked at a contractor for the county and was taking a break to watch a game when the shooting happened.
The victims were in a house when the shooter came in the front door and shot them.
He also shot and killed a family dog, the mother said.
The woman said the shooter left in a car and the mother went back to the house, but the suspect kept coming back, according, to the sheriff’s office.
A neighbor who lives on the same street told AL, “It’s really scary, it’s really strange.”
Authorities were searching for the man who was driving the car and that of a woman who lived on the street, but no one was home at the time of the shooting, the sheriff said.
Anyone with information about the shooting or the shooter’s vehicle was asked to call the Tuscala County Sheriff�s Office at 205-872-5500 or the Tusk County Sheriff, 205-734-4100.
