UPDATE: The man killed in the shooting has been identified as 36-year-old Mandel Pearson of Anniston.


One person is dead after a mass shooting in Greene County over the weekend.

It happened Sunday morning around 2 a.m. at the Eutaw National Guard Armory.

Eutaw Police Chief Derrick Coleman said the armory had been rented out to the Sin City Motorcycle Club for an event.

Coleman said an argument started inside the building before those involved moved outside.

That’s when the shootings happened.

Six people were shot, and one person was killed.

Two of those injured have lift-threatening injuries.

A Greene County Sheriff’s Deputy was shot in the leg, but he is expected to be okay.

So far, no one has been arrested.

“People should feel safe,” said SBI Public Information Officer Special Agent Jason Ward. “We are conducting the investigation. I have full confidence in the Sheriff’s Department also with the Police Department here in Eutaw. They are doing everything that they can to ensure the safety of the citizens of Eutaw.”

The investigation has been turned over to the Alabama State Bureau Of Investigation.
