Police say the gunman who fired into a crowded bar near the University of Alabama turned himself in to authorities.
Police Chief Steve Anderson said the man went to a business about 45 miles north of the shooting in Tuscaloosa. The man told employees at the business in Jasper 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 believe the rampage was connected to an earlier shooting at a home.
Nearly a dozen people were wounded by gunfire at the Copper Top bar. One person was in critical condition.
