The shooting occurred at a leased Airbnb in Birmingham’s Inglenook neighborhood. Shots were reported in the 4100 block of 49th Terrace North in the Inglenook neighborhood shortly after 2 a.m., prompting police from the city’s East Precinct to respond.

According to Fitzgerald, initial evidence suggests the party was a birthday celebration. Shots were fired when an argument broke out. Over a hundred shot casings were found and turned over to the authorities.
We think it was restricted to the partygoers, said Fitzgerald. He estimated that the partygoers’ average age was around 19. Over fifty obviously distressed bystanders gathered around the crime site. To date, there have been no arrests. Fitzgerald claimed that several of the partygoers left after hearing gunfire. He insisted that the police should contact those individuals.
