Ala. police name, charge gunman in bar shooting
Police charge Alabama man with attempted murder in bar shooting near college campus
By The Associated Press

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) ¯¯¯ Police say the gunman who opened fire on a crowded bar is a 44-year-old Alabama man.

Tuscaloosa police say Nathan Van Wilkins turned himself in Tuesday, several hours after the shooting at a bar near the University of Alabama campus. Authorities say 17 people were injured in the shooting.

Tuscaloosa police say Wilkins has been charged with one count of attempted murder but they expected to add 16 more counts of the same charge.

Wilkins is being held on $100,000 bond, but police say it will be increased to $1.7 million once all the counts are added.

Police believe the rampage was connected to a shooting at a home about 45 minutes earlier. They are investigating whether both evolved from a dispute between rival motorcycle gangs.
