TUSCALOOSA - AL -
ABC 33/40 is working to get information from Tuscaloosa about a shooting early Wednesday.
A YouTube video from the scene shows police activity on the strip near the University of Alabama. We do know suspects accused of firing a gun or guns are in custody.
The university has issued two alerts to students. The first confirmed that shots were fired on the strip and that investigators were working on the scene. It also confirmed suspects were in custody and that authorities were taking the necessary precautions. A second alert issued was to tell students the situation was cleared and that both suspects were in custody. That alert confirmed no injuries were reported. It closed by saying an investigation is underway.
Bad injuries, but nobody was shot. Two guys were knocked out in the street. It started as a fight in front of or in Egans bar.
I just got back from the scene and someone was definitely hurt. Witnesses say that two people went to the hospital.
There's a 6-inch blood stain on the road in front of Egan's from one person. Another person was apparently on the ground but not bleeding across the street in front of Houndstooth.
There's a report that a co-worker of one of the victims said she saw multiple coaches and football players at the hospital including Coach Cochran and Nico Johnson.
If someone is drunk it really does not matter how big you are. I've seen 150 pound dudes drop 200 pound guys with the quickness.
Saban losing control. Bar fights and guns. At least our guys just kick you in your head when you are down. Now that is fighting
