Neighbors’ feud ends in gun fight, police standoff

Two next door neighbors were taken into custody Sunday afternoon after a disagreement turned into a shootout on 64th Avenue off of Johnson Road in Tuscaloosa.

Tuscaloosa Police Deputy Chief Sebo Sanders said the shootout stemmed from a fight between the two neighbors, that escalated into shots being fired.

“After getting on the scene, we were able to secure one residence. The second one was a smaller standoff, which later, the suspect came out, which we have taken him into custody,” Sanders said.

Police did not release the names and ages of the two suspects.

“This is a quiet neighborhood. First time we’ve gotten a call in this area,” Sanders said. “We’re going to address some situations with the neighbors to make sure everybody is safe in Tuscaloosa, especially this area off of Johnson Road,” Sanders said.

No injuries were reported.
