|Suspect Sought in Auburn Shooting that Killed 3
|AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- The search continues in Alabama for a gunman suspected of killing three people and wounding three more in a shooting at a pool party near Auburn University. Two of the slain victims were former players for the school's powerhouse football program.
Authorities are searching for 22-year-old Desmonte Leonard of Montgomery, who's accused of opening fire Saturday night at an apartment complex after getting into a fight with some of the victims over a woman. He faces three counts of capital murder.
Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson says Leonard fled the scene in a white Chevrolet that he abandoned on the way back to Montgomery, about 55 miles away. They believe he's in the Montgomery area.
