Three Teens Charged After Thursday Morning Shooting
Three teens are being charged with various crimes after a shooting on Short 16th Street in Tuscaloosa early Thursday morning.
No injuries have been reported, but Captain Marty Sellers of the multi-agency Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit said multiple people exchanged gunfire and struck occupied homes in the area as well as unoccupied vehicles.
Sellers said one 17-year-old is being arrested and will be charged as an adult for shooting into an occupied residence and shooting into an unoccupied vehicle.
A 15-year-old is also being charged with shooting into an occupied residence and shooting into an unoccupied vehicle as well as one count of receiving stolen property for carrying a stolen firearm and one count of possession of a firearm while forbidden from doing so because of his age.
Sellers also said a 16-year-old is being charged with first-degree possession of stolen property after investigators determined he was driving a stolen vehicle.
The case is still developing, and Sellers said police have recovered five different guns in the aftermath of the shooting.
