Copper Top Bar Shooting in Tuscaloosa: Gunman Arrested [Updated]
17 people were wounded in a shooting at the Copper Top Bar in Tuscaloosa, Alabama in the early hours of July 17, 2012. Four of those wounded are in critical condition.
The Tuscaloosa Police Department tweeted a photo of the suspect, taken by a CCTV camera in the bar parking lot. The video only shows the suspect's back. A photo from a different angle isn't sharp enough to capture the gunman's face.
The shooter was wearing a backwards baseball cap and carrying a rifle. He has a tattoo on his left arm.
[Update: a suspect has been arrested for the Alabama bar shooting. He may have been targeting a specific person in the bar.

University student Riley Dunn was at the Copper Top Bar when the shooting occurred: "It was kind of loud from the music, but we heard the gunshot, and no one really knew what to think. The first gunshot took place, then about 20 seconds later, that's when he really started firing them off. After that, everyone really scattered."
