Man killed in overnight shooting in Tuscaloosa

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -

A 25-year-old man was killed in an overnight shooting at an apartment complex in Tuscaloosa. The shooting occurred around 2 a.m. Sunday  at the Sterling Crimson Apartments on 17th street near the University of Alabama's campus.

Tuscaloosa police said the man, whose identity has not yet been released, was pronounced dead on Sunday at DCH Regional Medical Center.  The Tuscaloosa Metro Homicide Unit is investigating the homicide.

One resident of the apartment complex said she heard as many as six gunshots. Witnesses say they saw the victim bleeding from the head, run around the corner and collapse.

Mecca Scarver witnessed the victim receiving first aid once paramedics arrived.

"They hooked him up to IV's, defibrillators. They were doing CPR and everything, trying to revive him for 20 to 30 minutes," Scarver said. "They put him on a stretcher and put him in the back of an ambulance and took him to the hospital. About 10 minutes later, a whole swarm of police showed up."

As of this afternoon, no arrests had been made in connection to the shooting.
