TUSCALOOSA, Ala (WIAT): One person was killed and another was severely beaten after a fight at a Tuscaloosa trailer park on Sunday, per Captain Gary Hood of Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office.
Around 2:30 A.M. Homicide Investigators responded to a shooting at Southern Oaks Trailer Park located on the 2300 block of Crabtree Road. Upon arrival, investigators found Calvin Pruitt, Jr., 38, deceased from multiple gunshot wounds.
Investigators also found a second victim near Pruitt's body who had been severely beaten. The assault victim was transported to DCH Health System for treatment. Authorities have not named the second victim but says he is 39 year old male.
