[Posted at 12:00 a.m. ET] Multiple people were shot early Tuesday at a Tuscaloosa, Alabama, bar, and a suspect remains at large, Police Chief Steve Anderson said at a news conference.
The suspect is a stocky white male, who is between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-9, the chief said. It appeared from surveillance video that he walked up to the bar, stood outside for a few minutes looking for someone, then began shooting a military-style assault rifle, Anderson said.
Tuscaloosa police Sgt. Brent Blankley told CNN 17 people were admitted to DCH hospital with injuries related to the shooting. Anderson could not confirm how many of those admitted were shot and how many were injured by shrapnel or flying objects. Of those hurt, he said, one was "extremely critical," and three others were in critical condition.FULL STORY
