After an almost three-day reprieve, authorities are investigating another shooting in the city of Tuscaloosa.
Tuscaloosa police confirmed via Facebook on Tuesday that two men have been hospitalized with gunshot wounds after a shooting at Broadmoore Gardens.
Officers were summoned at about 8 p.m. to the apartment complex off James I. Harrison Jr. Parkway, from which one victim was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center.
A police spokesperson said another victim was located at the nearby Food Mart convenience store on McFarland Boulevard and also taken to the hospital.
No other details were released as the case remains under investigation.
This shooting comes three days after Jeffrey Charles, 33, was shot and killed in an Alberta neighborhood Saturday night.
The Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit has since charged two 16-year-olds – Johnneius Wilson and Keyonta Jones –with murder and attempted murder.
Jail records indicated Tuesday night that Wilson remains jailed on $210,000 bail.
The jail currently has no record of Jones still being held.
Officials with the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit said the shooting came after a fight broke out in the area of 24th Avenue East and Third Street East at about 10 p.m. Saturday.
Wilson and Jones were among a large gathering of people when the fighting began.
Charles, however, was not involved in the physical altercation or the gunfire that followed. Rather, he has been described was an “innocent bystander” who was killed by errant gunfire when the shooting began.
“It was determined that the shooters engaged in reckless conduct that caused the death of another person,” said Capt. Jack Kennedy, commander of the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit.
Saturday’s shooting in Alberta capped a week of violence that resulted in dead and injured people across the city.
An 8-year-old child was hospitalized after being struck by a stray bullet on June 22 when gunfire erupted at Crescent East Apartments in northeast Tuscaloosa.
Residents of the apartment complex near Holt told police that several people were firing guns with an estimated 20 to 40 shots fired and officials have said investigators recovered numerous shell casings in the area.
However, no arrests have been made or suspects named in this case.
One June 23, 44-year-old Henry McAlpine was shot during what investigators called a “personal disagreement” at a residence in the 3000 block of Elm Street, near Kaulton Park.
McAlpine later succumbed to his injuries at DCH and the suspect, 24-year-old Omar Jerrell Fowler, faces one count of murder.
And on June 24, one woman shot another woman following an argument near Harmon Park, authorities said.
The victim was taken to DCH with non-life threatening injuries and Claudia Key, 38, now faces one count of attempted murder.
