APD looking into 2 shooting incidents

News Staff Writer

Atmore Police Chief Chuck Brooks reported this week that APD detectives are investigating two separate shooting incidents, each of which occurred inside the city limits last Sunday, October 25.
A person was wounded in one of the incidents, and investigators are reportedly looking at the case as a possible attempted murder, while details of the other one are almost non-existent.
In a press release issued Monday (October 26), Brooks said the first investigation began when “officers responded to a call from Atmore Community Hospital in reference to a gunshot victim.”
When officers arrived at the local hospital, they came into contact with “a male subject being treated for a gunshot wound to the left hand.”
According to police reports, the shooting took place at a residence on Gray Street.
Officers were also sent on Sunday to McRae Street Apartments after dispatchers relayed reports of “multiple shots fired in the area.”
Brooks said both incidents are still under investigation, and no arrest has been made in either. Time of occurrence was not provided for either incident.
