2 people injured in shooting on I-20

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — Irondale Police are investigating after two people were shot on Interstate 20 Tuesday night.

According to Sgt. Mark Meadows with Irondale Police, one of the two people shot was transported to UAB Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The other person shot refused treatment.

Police received a call of shots fired just before 11 p.m. last night. Officers worked two scenes on I-20, one at exit 133 and one just east of the 20/59 junction, according to Sgt. Hill.

Meadows said officers found more than 10 shell casings between the Red Mountain Expressway and I-459 exits on I-20.

Investigators believe the victims were targeted.

Meadows said it was remarkable that no other drivers were hurt.

“These guys, they don’t care who they shoot at. They don’t care who they hit. They had one target in mind. They were trying to hit that target, and if they hit somebody else, that’s just the way it goes with them,” Meadows said.

Police still have not identified any suspects, as they continue to investigate.

WIAT will continue to bring you updates as more information becomes available.

This article has been edited to show that the investigation is no longer a road rage investigation.
