Tuscaloosa police are investigating after a man was found dead Thursday in Cottondale.

It happened on Clearview Street just after 10:30 p.m.

The victim has been identified as 27-year-old Cory Mitchell.

Police found multiple shell casings at the scene and at least one shot was fired into a nearby home.

“As far as I know it is a quiet area, quiet neighborhood,” said Capt. Kip Hart with the Tuscaloosa Violent Crimes Unit. “Not a lot of traffic in and out, so if (someone) saw something that stood out or didn’t seem normal, call law enforcement or Crime Stoppers.”

No suspects or motive have developed at this time, and investigators are asking for help.

If you have any information about the shooting, please call Crime Stoppers at 205-752-7867.
