On Wednesday, April 19, 2023, at around 8:00 PM, Community Safety Partnership officers and North Precinct officers were dispatched to the 3000 Block of 29th Avenue North (Collegeville Housing Community) on report of a person shot.
Officers arrived on the scene and observed an adult female and her 5-year-old daughter in the front yard of an apartment suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.
Birmingham Fire and Rescue (BFR) personnel transported the adult female to UAB Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries; BFR transported the 5-year-old child to Children’s Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
The preliminary investigation suggests multiple suspects fired gunshots toward the victims and then fled the scene.
There is no one in custody and this was a targeted incident. Officers recovered over 70 spent shell rifle/handgun shell casings from the scene. The Birmingham Police Department’s Real Time Crime Center has greatly assisted our detectives in this investigation.
The public is urged to call us directly if they have any tips (205) 254-1764 or remain anonymous and receive a cash reward by dialing Crime Stoppers @ (205) 254-7777.
