“At this time, it appears that the only motive was a minor altercation that these individuals had with the victim as they were out on The Strip,” Tuscaloosa police Capt. Jack Kennedy said.

Kennedy added there was no proof of a prior relationship between the involved parties.

Harris was a passenger in the car. The driver of the vehicle stated he returned fire after his car was shot at.

“The University of Alabama’s utmost priority is the safety and well-being of the campus community,” a statement from the university reads. “We are grieved by the incident that occurred near campus last night and extend our deepest condolences to the victim’s family and friends.”
