Early morning shooting injures one man


One man was transported to Huntsville Hospital after being shot around 3:30 this morning.

According to Lieutenant Michael Johnson with the Huntsville Police Department, the victim picked up an “unknown male” at a gas station at Henderson and University.

The victim’s girlfriend needed her car to go to work, so he drove the man to an undisclosed location before taking him to Ashford Terrace Apartments in Huntsville.

The offender shot the victim and fled on foot from the area. The offender is a black male and was seen wearing a red hoodie and black jeans.

The victim is in critical condition and going into surgery.

Police are still investigating.
