When it comes to SEC Media Days, there’s always some surprise, some scandal that takes over the event. Today, Media Days will begin under the shadow of tragedy.
Around midnight ET, a gunman entered a Tuscaloosa bar popular among college students and opened fire injuring — reports say — 17 people. The Birmingham News reports that surveillance video from the Copper Top bar shows the gunman, who is now the target of a massive manhunt.
At least two people are in critical condition following the shooting.
Media Days opens in Hoover, Alabama just about an hour away from Tuscaloosa. Once again, sadly, the prayers of MrSEC.com have to go out to the people in the University of Alabama family. All the best to the victims — students and non-students alike.
