TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - A 20-year-old man is accused of shooting one person to death and wounding eight others in a rampage of gunfire in a crowded room where people had gathered for a high school graduation party in Tuscaloosa.

Capt. Loyd Baker, commander of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit, said eight attempted murder charges were filed Monday against Akeem Antwan Prewitt, who was charged earlier with murder.

Prewitt was being held on bonds totaling $195,000. Baker said he was not sure if Prewitt had a lawyer.

Baker said Prewitt got in a gang-related argument with several men after he began dancing with a girl around midnight Saturday at the The Links apartment complex clubhouse.
