Saturday Shooting in Tuscaloosa Was Gunfight Between Groups, 2 Men Arrested
A Saturday shooting that left two men injured was a gunfight between two groups of people at a Tuscaloosa apartment complex, and two men have been arrested in connection to it.
Captain Jack Kennedy, the commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit, said officers were called to Hodo Haven Apartments on 33rd Street East around 8 p.m. Saturday on reports of a shooting.
Two men had been shot, and both have survived so far - Kennedy said police do not believe their injuries are life-threatening at this time.
Since Saturday, police have been interviewing witnesses, reviewing surveillance footage and processing evidence.
Kennedy said one group of people fired on another, who returned fire in "apparent self-defense."
Kennedy said one of the suspects was also injured in the gunplay.
Two men have been arrested, but Kennedy said multiple people were seen firing weapons and more arrests are possible.
25-year-old Kejuan Arrington has been charged with attempted murder and had his release revoked on a previous charge. He is being held at the Tuscaloosa County Jail with no bond.
Antwone Stowe, 23, has been charged with Attempted Murder and jailed on a $250,000 bond.
The issue of self-defense will be examined by the District Attorney's office and a grand jury if necessary, Kennedy said.
Anyone who was present or witnessed this incident is encouraged to contact the Violent Crimes Unit at (205) 464-8690.
