Sumiton Police Chief T. J. Burnett told news outlets that officers are looking for a second suspect in Tuesday afternoon’s shooting.
Officers were called to a gas station and found a man who had been shot in the arm. Officers then went to a nearby home and found 17-year-old Jamie Kernop dead. Another victim was taken to UAB Hospital in Birmingham. His condition was not available.
Burnett said a juvenile is in custody. His name is not being released because of his age.
