A shooting at a birthday party in Birmingham has left one person dead and three others injured, authorities in Alabama say.

U video statement, Assistant Public Information Officer Truman Fitzgerald said the shooting happened around 10 p.m. local time Friday night. Officers from the Birmingham Police Department’s South Precinct were dispatched to the 900 block of North 47th Street after receiving a report of several people shot.

When officers arrived at the scene, they first found an injured adult woman in front of the apartment, Fitzgerald said.

Inside the apartment, responders “observed at least three adult males suffering from gunshot wounds,” again in front of the apartment.

Officers provided medical treatment until Birmingham Fire and Rescue Services arrived. All victims were taken to local hospitals, Fitzgerald said. The woman received unspecified injuries, not caused by firearms.

One person was pronounced dead at the hospital, Fitzgerald said. CBS News affiliate CBS42 identified the man as 36-year-old Roshod Davidson.

Fitzgerald said the preliminary investigation indicates the group was “celebrating a birthday and having a party” at the address.

“An unknown suspect approached them and started shooting through the door of the party,” Fitzgerald said.

No one is in custody. Fitzgerald asked anyone with information about possible suspects to contact the Birmingham Police Department.
