Students Return To Class At Auburn; Hunt For Shooting Suspect Continues
Students are going to class on a rainy Monday in Auburn. There’s no doubt Saturday night’s shooting has left a heavy cloud of sadness over the city as well.
Meanwhile, several law enforcement agencies are searching in the Montgomery area for the accused gunman, Desmonte Leonard. He is 22 years old.
They found his car ditched between Auburn and Montgomery. He is from Montgomery, and police believe he’s headed in that direction.
Auburn Police say they will not sleep until they have Leonard behind bars.
Leonard is suspected of shooting six people at University Heights apartments late Saturday night. Three died, and one is still in critical condition, recovering from a gunshot wound to his head. Two others were treated and released from the hospital.
