ALABASTER – The Alabaster Police Department is investigating a shooting that occurred on Interstate 65 during the night of Sunday, July 5.

At approximately 9:31 p.m., APD received a call to assist another agency at Shelby Baptist Medical Center with an investigation into the shooting where a 32-year old man was shot in a car on the interstate.

The man has been treated for his injuries and released.

“We want to reassure everyone that this appears to be an isolated incident,” APD said in a release. “We would encourage anyone with information to come forward.”

APD is aware of speculation on social media and said there are some conflicting reports being given to them and spread on social media.

“Right now, the exact location of the shooting has not been determined because of conflicting information provided to officers,” APD said in a press release. “We are aware of information being circulated on social media, and it is inconsistent with the facts that we do have.”
