UPDATE (9/21/22 6:25 p.m.) — Mobile police say the police vehicle was hit at least three times by bullets.

Mobile police Chief Paul Prine says they had several officers in the area working various assignments, including patrol when the shooting happened.

He does say officers were on a detail working, but couldn’t go into further details.

Prine says there was no interaction between the suspects and the officers before the shooting. At least two officers were in the vehicle when the shots were fired. Several shots were fired, but police are still working to determine how many.

Police have not confirmed if the car was marked or unmarked. Two unoccupied homes were also hit by the bullets.

Police were searching for the suspect for several hours Tuesday night, and continued canvassing the area Wednesday, looking for witnesses to try and identify the shooter.

“Under no circumstances will it be tolerated that anyone in our community will be shooting at our law officers. We’re very fortunate that the law officers involved were not injured,” said Prine.
