WEEKEND ROUNDUP: 3 SHOT IN 2 SEPARATE INCIDENTS

The Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit responded to several incidents over the weekend. Here’s a roundup:


A 19-year-old man is recovering at UAB Hospital and another man is facing attempted murder charges after a shooting Saturday night.

The Tuscaloosa County Sheriff’s Office said it happened around 9:30 p.m. on Cabin Valley Road in the Three Forks area, near the Walker County line. Tuscaloosa homicide investigators found the victim on Warrior Cemetery Road, where he was being taken to UAB Hospital via Northflight. His injuries were classified as serious, but he’s expected to recover.

Investigators said they found a witness who said Larry Willcutt Jr., 41, was the shooter. Authorities said there is no clear motive for the shooting.

Willcutt was taken into custody Sunday afternoon by the Walker County Sheriff’s Office and was taken back to the Tuscaloosa County Jail.

He’s facing an attempted murder charge and his bond was set at $60,000.


Tuscaloosa Police are investigating after an early-morning shooting at a Tuscaloosa nightclub left two men injured.

Police said it happened around 2:25 a.m. Sunday at Club Playhouse, located at 3213 10th Street. A 19-year-old man with life-threatening injuries was taken to DCH Regional Medical Center by ambulance. Police said he’d been shot several times.

Police said while they were at DCH, a second shooting victim — this one with non life-threatening injuries — arrived at the hospital by private vehicle.

The second victim said he was walking through the club’s parking lot when he was shot.

Investigators said they believe the victims may have been shooting at each other over another shooting earlier this month.

Police said that despite there being many patrons at or leaving the club at the time of the shooting, they found no one who said they witnessed the event.

The case is pending further investigation.
