A man was shot and killed and four others were injured on Sept. 9 during a shooting at a McDonald’s near Auburn University in Auburn, Alabama, according to police. The Auburn Police Department said in a news release that it got a call at 2:24 a.m. of shots fired in the 200 block of W. Magnolia Avenue. Officers were already in the area of the shooting and were “dispersing a large crowd,” officials said. OaNow.com reported that the address is a McDonald's. As of Sunday afternoon, the McDonald's was open and serving customers, the report said. “Officers confirmed shots were being fired and located several victims. A 20-year-old male from Tuskegee, Alabama, was discovered deceased, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. Additionally, four other individuals were found to be injured from the gunfire. Three victims were transported to East Alabama Medical Center by ambulance with nonlife-threatening injuries,” according to police. The victims were identified as a 17-year-old male, a 19-year-old female, and a 21-year-old male Auburn University student. A 16-year-old “was also flown to Piedmont Columbus Regional Medical Center by air ambulance with serious injuries,” said officials. An altercation took place just before the shooting occurred, and police said that it doesn’t appear to be a random shooting. Fox News reported that students were celebrating an Auburn Tigers win over the Alabama State Hornets. The report said that the suspect is still at large. The shooting is still under investigation.
