Investigation Underway After Fatal Shooting at Tuscaloosa, Alabama Apartments Sunday
Less than 24 hours after a man was shot and killed in Tuscaloosa's Snow Hinton Park, police are on the scene of another deadly shooting, this time at an area apartment complex.
Stephanie Taylor, the public information officer for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said officers were called to the Legacy at Country Club Apartments on Mimosa Park Road around 3:15 p.m. Sunday after residents there reported a man had been fatally shot there.
Officers and Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's deputies responded and found a man dead in an outdoor area of the complex. His age and identity had not been publicly released as of 4:45 Sunday afternoon as police work to notify his family.
Taylor said the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit is taking over the investigation and talking with neighbors. She said they are looking into whether the fatal shooting was related to a separate shooting incident at the complex that occurred around 4 a.m. Sunday.
In that case, two residents reported that their apartments had been struck by gunfire and that a group of people had fled the area on foot. No one was injured in the morning incident.
