Tuscaloosa Police: Shooting More Than Football Rivalry

Tools

By Alabama News Network

Tuscaloosa police now say a shooting after the LSU-Alabama game appears to have involved more than football rivalry.

A 30-year-old Tuscaloosa man told officers he was shot in both legs after two men taunted him for being a University of Alabama fan early Sunday. The shooting happened just hours after the game.

But investigative Sgt. Dale Phillips says there's no proof the violence involved fan rivalry.

The Tuscaloosa News quotes Phillips as saying video shows no one was wearing any school attire, and there was no time for words to be exchanged.

He says the shooting involved Tuscaloosa-area people and might have spilled over from an incident at another business that also was reported to police.

No arrests have been made, and the man who was shot is recovering.
