BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — The Birmingham Police Department is investigating a shooting after multiple people were shot Sunday morning.
According to BPD, officers were working in an off-duty capacity at a bar in the 2700 block of 7th Avenue South when they were alerted of shots fired in a nearby parking lot at around 12:50 a.m. Upon arrival, officers found an adult female injured by gunfire and an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound.
While officers were in the parking lot, they saw a separate party who was involved in the incident leaving in a vehicle. They conducted a traffic stop and discovered two people were shot. Birmingham Fire and Rescue arrived at two separate locations and transported each victim to a local hospital. The man from the parking lot and one of the men discovered in the traffic stop have suffered life-threatening injuries.
Preliminary investigation suggests the two men found during the traffic stop were involved in a physical altercation with the man found in the parking lot at the original scene and led to shots being exchanged between the two parties.
