Sellers said two people were injured by gunfire, a man and a woman, but the investigator said police do not consider injuries to either victim to be life-threatening.

The shooting drew a huge law enforcement response and the Tuscaloosa Police Department's SWAT team to the complex Thursday sometime roughly around 7 p.m.

The VCU investigation is continuing and no other details were available Thursday night.
