Two Teenaged Brothers And One Man Arrested For Sweet 16 Mass Shooting In Alabama Town

Two teenaged brothers and one man have been arrested after a shooting at a Sweet 16 birthday party in Dadeville, Alabama, left four people dead and 32 people injured, The New York Post reported.

On Saturday, at around 10:30 P.M., a night meant to celebrate a 16-year-old’s birthday came to an abrupt end, when partygoers became victims of a mass shooting. Four people, between the ages of 17 and 23, lost their lives, while 32 were sent to nearby hospitals with injuries.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the three shooters were located and taken into police custody. 17-year-old Ty Reik McCullough, 16-year-old Travis McCullough, and 20-year-old Wilson LaMar Hill Jr. have each been charged with four counts of reckless murder with more charges to follow. According to District Attorney Mike Segrest, the teen brothers will be charged as adults, but a possible motive for the attack has yet to be revealed.

“We’re going to make sure every one of those victims has justice and not just the deceased,” Segrest said.

The deceased victims have been identified as 19-year-old Marsiah Collins, 18-year-old Phil Dowdell, 23-year-old Corbin Holston, and 17-year-old Shaunkivia Smith.
