Residents Call Out Prichard PD After latest Shooting

Residents Call Out Prichard PD After latest Shooting

Posted: Updated:
PRICHARD, ALABAMA -

Citizens in Prichard are speaking out over concerns about public safety. The latest was sparked after a shooting Wednesday afternoon.

No one was hurt but a group of people were sitting outside when a man walked up and started shooting.

Many say it has been open season for crime in the city over the past six months or so.

Sam Williams was out there and says now he can't rely on police for protection.

"I've got a shotgun in there now, I keep it there because you never know what is going to come up with these youngsters, but when Jimmie Gardner was here I didn't have to have one I took them back up the country," said Williams.

Police confirm that two men were arrested for the shooting that they say were in an ongoing dispute. But city officials would not talk on camera about citizen concerns.
