Anyone have any info on the shooting at Copper Top?
Someone just posted this on Facebook. Wanting info, too.
My roommate came home with blood splattered on his clothes. Someone got shot right next to him. Said there were multiple gunshots
What the hell is going on around here lately? Downtown and the Strip have been extra dangerous the last few months.
Twitter says it was an assault rifle. Wow!

I was at 1831, got grazed. My buddy was facing Cooper Top and didn't even see the guy. We just heard a sound that was like a firecracker, didn't react for a second...then a few seconds later they kept going, I felt one hit my shoulder and we were jumping over the wooden barrier outside the bar while a few more were fired.
We waited a few more seconds then took off running. We went to 25th around RBC and saw a big blood trail at the corner going across the street.
I didn't know how serious I was- so we stopped at Bo's thinking it was a scratch. Apparently they don't give free beer for bullet wounds but the door guy did give good advice that my graze needs to be sewn.
Anyway, we walked back to the area and saw a girl with a leg wound and heard another guy got hit in the chest with 8 or 9 total hit.
That's all I know.

Praying for you and everyone affected man
BTW, it should be noted that there hasn't been a University alert sent out yet. Not sure what the point of that service is anymore.
Bump if there is anymore Info.
well it wasn't on the campus if it was downtown. Not sure if they do that if it isn't campus related
Several reports say that the suspect described was in full body armor, wielding an assault rifle and opening fire in crowds. Until notified otherwise, he is on the loose, and considered armed and very dangerous.
I was just discharged. At least 8-9 wounded, four serious- shots to the leg, chest and back, the last wasn't known by the nurse tending me.
I don't know how many shooters, like I said earlier I heard someone say it was one guy, and heard another story from a nurse she was told by someone there that they saw a guy go to his car and come back with a huge gun.
But as I was leaving the security guards warned us against leaving- the hospital was locked down with cops everywhere- saying it was safe. He also said there were 4 shooters- though I only heard 12-16 shots.
Anyway guys I'm going to bed.
It's good to be alive. Prayers for those seriously injured.
My first sig!
TUSCALOOSA | At least 16 people were confirmed wounded, four critically, when a gunman opened fire in Temerson Square early Tuesday.

ttown police have pictures and videos on their facebook page
Glad to hear you're ok.
That's ridiculous if really their policy. Temerson Square is extremely close to campus and students go there all the time, basically as much as on campus bars. The shooter could've gotten into his car and been on campus in 2 minutes. He could've gotten into his car and been at very popular student bars Innisfree or The Booth in seconds, also downtown. There is virtually no difference between campus and downtown when it comes to where students hang out.
There is absolutely no excuse for there not to be an alert from the University in this case. None.
It was on the ua.edu website over 2 hours ago.

I got an alert about 3:30 this morning. It said they had a man in custody. From what I am reading here he wasn't yet been apprehended.
Nevermind, it does say he has not yet been apprehended. I just misread it because it woke me up.

Damn TalHawk! Glad you are ok man. Anyone know if this is VaTech copycat type stuff or maybe gang related???
