One person had been shot, and Kennedy said they were transported to DCH Regional Medical Center with injuries that police do not believe are life-threatening.

Kennedy said the VCU has taken over the investigation and has a person of interest in custody.

In a Monday afternoon update, Kennedy said the shooting seems to have come after an argument between the victim, a 54-year-old man, and the alleged shooter, who is 29.

Cedric Alexander Sanders, Jr, age 29, has been charged with first-degree assault and booked in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $30,000 cash bond.
