HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - An early-morning shooting at a Huntsville gas station left one dead and two others injured Wednesday.

Officers say Ashia Raquel Oliver, 18, died at the scene of the shooting. Andrae Norvel, 20, and Wendell Jackson, 18, were also injured in the shooting. They were both taken to the hospital to be treated.

Huntsville Police Deputy Chief Kirk Giles said, "The young lady, Ms.  Oliver who passed away, as we can tell as not a participant in this original incident. She was an innocent bystander."

It started when officers responded to the Sunoco Gas Station on Pulaski Pike around 2:00 a.m. Wednesday. The gas station is located on the corner of Mastin Lake Road.

Police numerous shots were fired after a large crowd gathered at the scene. Investigators believe the incident may have actually started at the Wavaho gas station on Winchester Road. They're working to determine whether that altercation may have led to the shooting on Pulaski Pike.

"We're going to have to go to everywhere the investigation leads us. Whether it be a club, or somewhere else. I have heard it  may have happened from a parking lot to a ball field. We will gave to go to each of those," added Giles.

Investigators believe there are multiple shooters, based on witness reports.

No arrests have been made.

        North Huntsville is what is hated about Huntsville as the community there continues to suffer from their own…

        True, the articles never state that a shooting occurs in the north side of Huntsville, that would be wrong according to some people and the journalists would be called racists and ignorant for stating facts

        Not sure what story you are talking about… I have been keeping up with all the shootings so far this year and the majority take place in north Huntsville. If you can stay away from north Huntsville you are far less likely to be shot randomly… just saying

      Seriously? One word missing and your reading comprehension goes to the wayside? It was obviously supposed to read, “Police say numerous shots were fired…”

      This is just an example of why we need common core in schools.

    Let’s see, late night early morning, large thug crowd at a gas station, most likely drugs and alcohol flowing, Hmmm??? A reasonable person would know that’s not a safe place to be. Your only a victim if you want to be, sorry if the truth hurts, but this girl should have known better not to be there. Hopefully some good will come out of this if at least one teenager learns from this and does not become a future victim.

    Why are some people using this senseless death as a way to feel superior? Violence is everywhere. No one person or place is to blame in this instance. We should wait for the full story to come out.
