1 dead, 1 arrested following Saturday shooting in Huntsville


HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – Huntsville Police said a man has been arrested and charged with murder after a shooting Saturday afternoon.

Police said Christopher Kwan Freeman, 22, turned himself in at HPD headquarters around 9:30 a.m. Sunday.

According to Captain Michael Johnson, the shooting happened around 4:30 p.m. in the 200-block of Binford Drive.

TMZ reported the shooting occurred while rapper Lil Boosie was filming a music video.

Lil Boosie shared this tweet late Saturday evening.

Johnson confirmed a large gathering was occurring on Huntsville Housing Authority property and around 50-100 people were leaving the area when the first officers arrived, but neither HPD nor HHA were aware of the large gathering.

Johnson said Randall Strong, Jr., 20, was taken to Huntsville Hospital in critical condition, where he later died from his injures.

Freeman was booked into the Madison County Jail on a $75,000 bond.
