Alabama shooting: 1 dead, 9 injured in New Year’s Eve incident

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) – One person was killed and nine injured in a shootout just blocks from where thousands of people lined the streets for a New Year’s Eve party in downtown Mobile, Alabama, announced the police.

Television news footage showed running and mounted police rushing to the area where the shooting took place around 45 minutes before midnight on Saturday.

Neither the name of the person killed nor the condition of the nine people taken to hospital have been released by the police.

Filming took place a few blocks from the main stage of the Moon Pie Over Mobile festival. The event continued with fireworks and a moon pie falling from a downtown building at midnight to mark the start of 2023,

The shooter and the person killed appeared to know each other, Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine told reporters near the scene.

“It would reassure all of us downtown that this wasn’t just a random shooting,” Prine said.
