Victim Reports Accidental Gunshot Wound Near Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa
There was no threat to the University of Alabama campus early Saturday morning when first responders were called to a scene near Bryant-Denny Stadium to treat someone suffering from a gunshot wound, UA officials said in an email to students.
In an announcement from UA News sent just before 3 a.m. Saturday, a spokesperson told the student body that medics were called to an area near the stadium around midnight, where they found a person in a car who had been shot in the leg.
The injury was allegedly accidental, occurred off campus and was not life-threatening, according to UA.
The University said the victim was not affiliated with UA and that "there was never a related threat to the campus community."
