HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) – Huntsville Police are looking for an alleged shooter.

It happened on Sunday night in the 2200 block of Evans Avenue in Huntsville just after 11:00 p.m.

Damian Washington, 20, says he was with his friends near the roadway when a 4-door vehicle pulled up and a person inside began shooting at them.  Washington was shot several times in the leg.

A friend took Washington to Huntsville Hospital before police arrived. Authorities say he is in stable condition.

Witness tell police they saw a black Chevrolet Impala driving away after the shooting.

This is the second shooting that has happened on Evans Avenue in just over a month.  Police have not said if the two incidents are related.

This case is still under investigation.

    Are we just become the “Wild Wild West” Everybody has a gun, every body carrying a gun & everybody shooting a gun!!!

  • P

    I moved away from Huntsville for this reason exactly. The HPD is a joke, they have no problem harassing the tax paying citizens, but when real crime happen they are still at the gas station hanging out with all their buddies on the tax payers dime. What is the crime solve rate this year again…. What a joke!

  • You

    The comment you posted just shows the utter ignorant comments and lack of compassion for people as a whole. Instead of estimating as you claim, which anyone who lives in Huntsville knows that street is in NW Huntsville get the facts then comment. Second, although the news stations may not report all crimes for each day The Huntsville Times prints nearly all reported offenses for the previous day. South Huntsville and West Huntsville have a nearly 85% higher crime rate per person reporting the majority of the time. Regardless of the type of criminal offense! So, with that being said, would it be plausible to claim that you so called educated citizens disgusting also? The unpalatable fact that many of the people perpetrating these crimes aren’t from North Huntsville Is something to think about. Oh, by the way, no shooting or any crime is a good matter. However, prostitution, burglaries, rapes, the thefts and so on aren’t any better on top of shootings and murders excluding North Huntsville. Your homeless rate is overwhelming, yet you guys are the most educated great citizens, but I ride through your area and very few are seeking to help these people. Give us the facts. Furthermore, your comments seem racially motivated and non at all aimed at the specific moiety of the city that you are degrading. I have been on all sides of Huntsville and there are disgusting people all over. That, too, is a fact.
