A 29-year-old Aliceville, Alabama man is hospitalized with gunshot wounds after his car was shot at least 10 times on Bluecutt Road early Saturday.

The incident occurred near the main office of the Columbus Post Office while the car was driving toward Military Road just after midnight. A car with the shooter inside drove up next to the victim’s car and opened fire before driving away. Police found 10 bullet holes in the car.

According to Police Chief Fred Shelton, the victim was driving and had just left the YoBar business on Bluecutt Rd. not far from the post office.

“The victim told our investigators that there was no argument or confrontation between him and anyone else,” said Chief Fred Shelton.

“At this time we don’t have a vehicle or suspect description since no one else saw anything. We are asking the public to help us and call us if they know anything,” Shelton added.

The victim required emergency surgery overnight and his current condition is unknown. Call Crimestoppers or use the P3 app. The Crimestoppers number is 1 (800) 530-7151.
