4 injured when shootout erupts in middle of interstate in Alabama, cops say

Police in Alabama are investigating after they say a shootout on a highway left four people injured.

The Birmingham Police Department began receiving calls around 4:40 p.m. Friday, Nov. 10, about a shootout taking place on Interstate 59.

When police arrived, they found two vehicles that were shot into, police said in a video posted on the department’s Facebook page.

Police found two people with gunshot wounds at the scene. The two men were taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Two other men showed up at a hospital with gunshot wounds, according to police. Their injuries were reported to be non-life-threatening.

Police believe one of the vehicles followed the other because the occupants thought it was their stolen car.

“We believe a group saw their possible stolen vehicle and began following it. This vehicle was allegedly taken in a neighboring city,” Officer Truman Fitzgerald said in the video.

The two groups then stopped on the interstate and a “shootout ensued,” police said.

Fitzgerald said police believe all four people who were shot were involved in the incident and no bystanders were hit by gunfire.
