Suspect Caught

July 17, 2012 - 11:18am


Police say the man who fired into a crowded bar near the University of Alabama turned himself into authorities.

Police Chief Steve Anderson said the man went to a business in Jasper and told employees that he was the suspect authorities were looking for. The employees called police and he was taken into custody.

The police chief would not identify the man. Anderson says he still doesn't know what the motive is, but they are investigating whether it involved a dispute between rival motorcycle gangs.

Police are investigating a link between the rampage and an earlier shooting at a home in Northport.
