Apr 1, 2021

Montgomery police are investigating two separate shootings that happened around the same time Wednesday night.

Capt. Saba Coleman said both happened at about 8 p.m.

News crews found one scene at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel on Tallapoosa Street.

Coleman said a man sustained a life-threatening gunshot wound.

She did not say if it happened inside or outside the hotel.

The victim was taken to a local hospital.

City officials say initial reports indicate it involved a couple engaged in a domestic violence situation.

The other shooting was in the 800 block of George B Edmondson Drive, about three miles away from the hotel.

Coleman said that victim, also an adult male, sustained a non-life threatening gunshot wound.

He was also taken to a hospital.

Coleman said both shootings were isolated incidents.

No other details or suspect information was released in either case.
