TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Police say a gunman who fired into a crowded bar was targeting someone, and authorities are looking into
whether the rampage was connected to an earlier shooting.

Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson said at least 11 people were hit by gunfire at the bar near the University of Alabama campus.

One person was also wounded in the earlier shooting at a home a
couple of miles away. That shooting occurred about 45 minutes before the 12:30 p.m. shooting at the Copper Top bar.

Police are looking for the gunman. They say he used a military-style assault weapon to unload two bursts of gunfire on the crowd at the bar.

They have a description of the gunman. Surveillance video shows him calmly walking up to the bar, carrying a gun.
