DOTHAN Ala. (WDHN) — Dothan Police responded to a single vehicle accident at the intersection of Powell Street and Edgewood Drive early Thursday morning, where they found a driver with a gunshot wound.

“Upon their arrival they quickly learned that the driver of the vehicle had suffered a gunshot wound in a different location,” Dothan Police Captain Will Glover said. “The driver was rushed to the hospital in critical condition. The investigation began there into the firearm assault.”

The police are doing an investigation on the shooting.

An exact location hasn’t been stated, but police said it’s on the west side of town.

“Through the course of the investigation, we have narrowed it down to a general vicinity where we believe the firearm assault occurred, and we are currently doing interviews and executing search warrants at this time,” Glover said.

Residents in the area have concerns about safety.

Some even say they hear gunshots every night, and they are cautious when they go out at night.

“Well the gunshots well, I really can’t say too much cause I try not to be involved in it,” resident Peppi Freeman said. “I know for my safety I try to be in the house at a certain time cause I know that stuff goes on, so I have to be very cautious about that.”
