    1. Parents await answers on their children – local media

      Local media in Alabama are reporting that some parents are still searching for information about their children 12 hours after the shooting took place. Some are reportedly going from hospital to hospital trying to find them.

      We do not know exactly how many people were injured at the 16th birthday party, only that Sgt Jeremy Burkett said earlier it was “multitudes”.

    2. Unclear if any suspects in custody

      As yet police have not confirmed what led to the shooting, or whether any suspects or persons of interest in the case have been taken into custody.

      The bloodshed comes within weeks of two other high-profile mass shootings – at a Christian school in Nashville, Tennessee, and a bank in Louisville, Kentucky. Eleven people died in those attacks overall.
