Active shooter reported on Bloomingdale Road
State Police and Sheriff's deputies are at a location on Bloomingdale Road where a person with a gun is apparently firing shots.
One officer said it sounded like a .22 rifle. Another said, "that last shot came from over by the woods, by the car."
The county's emergency response team (aka SWAT) is being dispatched.
UPDATE 2:39 a.m.: A reader who heard the start of the call said it began with the report of a domestic disturbance, with a female caller reporting the male half was threatening to kill her. A Mercy ambulance is dispatched, we believe as a precaution. Also Alabama fire is being assembled at its hall.
UPDATE 3:57 a.m. (by Billie): The ERT response is cancelled. Mercy medics and Alabama firefighters are back in service. No further information available at this time.
UPDATE 4:18 a.m.: At this point, we don't have any further information about what actually happened and how local law enforcment handled (or decided to handle) the situation. We will provide any updates that become available.
I thought I heard a gunshot. It woke me up fast. The wife was still asleep and didn't hear a thing... but that sound jolted me awake like nothing I've ever felt before... I thought it was a bad dream, but I wasn't sure.
Do you have an address where the shots were fired?
Just on Bloomingdale Road is all we have at this point.
