MADISON, Ala. - A man was killed and another was wounded in a shooting at a home in Madison.

Police received a 911 call around 1:30 am Monday to the home on the 200 block of Skyline Road. Police said they found one person dead and another man who'd been shot. That man is now out of the hospital.

"You see it happening all the time but you never think it's going to be somebody that close to you," Tiffany Kirkpatrick said. Kirkpatrick is friends with the victim.

Police haven't released the names of the two victims. Police say they believe it is an isolated incident and the public has no reason to be worried.

Neighbors say a group of renters had been living in the home for a few months. They haven't yet found the attacker, but friends of the man say they're shocked and saddened by the violent encounter.

"He was a guy who make sure no one would hate one another, he would try to bring people together," Andrew Dowb said.

So far, police haven't arrested anyone or shared a description of the attacker.

Police ask anybody with information to call the Madison Police Department at (256) 772-5689.
