BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) -- Police say a gunman opened fire from a car, killing a man outside his Birmingham apartment in the city's 7th killing in less than a week.
Birmingham police say the man was standing outside his apartment complex and talking with a friend when a dark-colored SUV drove by and someone started firing a gun from the vehicle.
Police Lt. Sean Edwards tells WBRC-TV (http://bit.ly/Wfj3bk) that several shots were fired, and the man was struck in the chest. He died at a hospital early Thursday morning.
Others killed in the past week include two men shot in a gun battle outside the Showstoppers Motorcycle Club; a 71-year-old woman stabbed in a break-in at her home; and a man shot during a robbery attempt as he walked through a park with his wife.
