Alabama authorities say one person was killed and three others were injured after a gunman opened fire at a birthday party in Birmingham.
Assistant Public Information Officer Truman Fitzgerald said in a video statement that the shooting occurred around 10 p.m. local time Friday night. Officers from the Birmingham Police Department’s South Precinct were dispatched to the 900 block of 47th Street North after receiving reports of multiple people shot.
When officers arrived at the scene, they first found an adult woman injured in front of an apartment, Fitzgerald said.
Inside the apartment, responders again observed “at least three adult males with gunshot wounds” in front of an apartment.
Officers provided medical care until Birmingham Fire and Rescue personnel arrived. All of the injured were taken to local hospitals, Fitzgerald said. The woman had unspecified gunshot wounds.
One person was pronounced dead at the hospital, Fitzgerald said. CBS News affiliate CBS42 identified the man as 36-year-old Roshod Davidson.
Fitzgerald said a preliminary investigation indicated the group was “celebrating a birthday and having a party” at the address.
“An unknown suspect approached them and started shooting at the door to the party,” Fitzgerald said.
No one is in custody. Fitzgerald said anyone with information about possible suspects should contact the Birmingham Police Department.
