BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Police in Birmingham say an overnight shooting has left one man dead and another person wounded.

Authorities say the gunfire happened around 3:00 AM outside East Birmingham Lounge.

Birmingham police Lt. Sean Edwards says a man was shot multiple times after an altercation started in the club.

Police say one of the wounded people ran to a nearby fire station, where he died. They say the second person walked into UAB Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

Witness to the shooting Kim Williams says, “Shirts were off and people were running outside so I just thought they were in there fighting. You know I didn’t think they were going to kill each other you know or whatever happened you know get guns and shoot the place up.”

No arrests were immediately made.
