Law enforcement in Gordo on the scene of shooting


GORDO, Ala. (WIAT) — Law enforcement in Gordo are on the scene of shooting at the Grandview Gardens apartment complex.

The incident started around 9:30 a.m. when law enforcement went to serve James Corder with an eviction notice.

The notice upset Corder, and officers were called back to the complex later Monday.

Corder was reportedly playing loud music and making threats.

When officers arrived back at the scene, Corder was armed with what authorities believe to be a hand gun.

He fired at officers and they fired back.

Corder was hit and was airlifted to UAB Hospital.

An officer suffered some non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.
