Video: 13 injured in Montgomery mass shooting, more than 600 rounds fired

Montgomery Mayor Steven Reed issued a correction to the following story: 362 rounds were discovered to be fired — not 600+ as reported initially. 

Nine people were shot, and four additional individuals were injured in a mass shooting incident at a crowded party in the early morning hours of Sunday, June 23.

At about 1:46 a.m., the Montgomery Police Department and Fire Medics responded to the area of North Pass Road and Alabama River Parkway regarding reports of gunshot victims. They found one adult female and one juvenile male, both with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds, according to Mayor Steven Reed.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) are interviewing witnesses and suspects.

“This morning, more than 362 rounds were fired at a crowded party in the North Pass area,” said Montgomery Mayor Steven L. Reed. “Nine were wounded, and at least four more were injured in the chaos that followed.”

“We are working tirelessly to identify those involved, and we urge anyone with information to come forward to help us put a stop to this sort of senseless, violent activity.”

Automatic gunfire saturated Montgomery, captured in a video clip of the chaos uploaded to Facebook:
