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.
