BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — Authorities are conducting several homicide investigations following three overnight shootings in Birmingham that left four people dead Friday morning.
According to officer Truman Fitzgerald with the Birmingham Police Department, West Precinct officers were dispatched around 10:30 p.m. to the 2300 block of 20th Place Ensley.

Both victims were pronounced dead at the scene and a suspect is in custody.
The second shooting happened about 30 minutes later, just a few blocks away, in the 2800 block of 29th Place Ensley. West Precinct officers arrived on the scene and found a man, 25-year-old Jonathan Devon Glenn, lying unresponsive on the front porch of a home suffering from several gunshot wounds. He was also pronounced dead at the scene. Fitzgerald says investigators believe that the victim was targeted, and no one is in custody at this time.
