Active search underway for triple shooting suspect in Gardendale

Active search underway for triple shooting suspect in Gardendale

Local police said Wednesday that three people were killed in a shooting incident in the US state of Alabama.

Authorities are focusing their search in a wooded area near a mobile home park in Gardendale, about 15 miles north of Birmingham.

Police Chief Mike Walker confirmed the three victims were adults, but declined to comment on their relationship to the suspect, other than to say there was a "familial relationship" and the incident was not a random crime.

Police said on Facebook they were searching for Kenneth Dion Lever, 52, of Florida, calling him "armed and risky".

Police said Lever is "armed and dangerous", and asked anyone who sees him not to approach and inform the police.

In Alabama, a protection from abuse order was also issued against Lever in December 2016 after his ex-wife suspected that he was abusing their 11-year-old daughter during unsupervised visits, according to AL.com.

Gardendale police, Kimberly police and the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office have set up a perimeter. Lever is accused of sexually abusing a young girl for than five years beginning in 2005 and sometimes forcing a young boy to participate.

The Lower Windsor Township Police Department also arrested Lever in two separate sexual assault cases on September 28 and October 13, 2015, according the York Daily Record.

Some reports suggest that previous year in December a judge issued an order telling Lever to stay away from his ex-wife Dana Lever and their daughter.

A Lincoln Navigator included in previous vehicle descriptions has been located in Florida and is no longer suspected, Walker said.

Police have nevertheless urged the public for vigilance and seek any information in the manhunt that now includes the entire state of Alabama and the Florida panhandle. "She is very clingy to me and will not let me leave her".
