Jefferson County deputies responded to a shooting at an apartment complex off Columbiana Road near Vestavia Hills. Investigators say they are still trying to track down the shooter.
The shooting happened around 5 a.m. Monday near a building at Kreekview Apartments. Police found a 20-year-old male shot in a breezeway. He was taken to UAB Hospital and had surgery. As of 8:30 a.m., he was still in critical condition.
Deputies have not released any information on the shooting suspect. They believe the person has left the area.
