Authorities in the city of Dadeville, Alabama, reported that a shooting at a birthday party on Saturday night resulted in four fatalities and 28 other injuries, some of which were critical.

Just after 10:30 p.m. local time, a Sweet 16 party was taking place when the assault happened at the Mahogany Masterpiece dancing studio.

By Sunday night, law enforcement authorities had still not disclosed any information regarding a motive or whether any suspects had been located.

During a press briefing, Sgt. Jeremy Burkett of the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency said, "This is also a very fluid situation," adding that investigators are still attempting to determine who was inside the studio building at the time of the occurrence.

He did not mention how many of the 28 injured were shot, or how many of them were in severe condition.

In order to support the investigation, which the ALEA initiated at the request of the Dadeville police chief, he invited members of the community to come forward with any information that might be relevant.

The hospital in Dadeville, administered by Ivy Creek Healthcare, handled at least 15 victims of gunshot wounds, according to Heidi Smith, director of marketing.

According to Smith, at least 17 ambulances arrived at the scene. Several more victims were sent to different hospitals while several sufferers at Lake Martin Community Hospital were treated and released.

According to Annette Allen, the attack happened at her granddaughter's 16th birthday celebration. High school athlete Allen's grandson was killed by the gunfire, and her daughter was hurt and taken to a nearby hospital.

The White House stated that President Biden received a briefing on the shooting and that he and his team have been in touch with local authorities to offer support and are actively monitoring the situation.
