BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — Police say they are looking for someone who shot three people, killing one of them, in Birmingham over the weekend while thousands of motorists were stuck in a traffic jam following a college football game.
News outlets report that 20-year-old Demarcus D. Bennett, of Fairfield, was fatally shot Saturday night in the chest as traffic was at a standstill after the Magic City Classic between Alabama A&M University and Alabama State University.
Birmingham police Lt. Barry Kennamer says the three victims were inside a car when the gunman walked up to Bennett and began arguing with him.
Witnesses say the suspect left, came back with a group of men and fired into the vehicle, killing Bennett, before fleeing. The two women were expected to survive from their injuries.
