CULLMAN — Cullman County Sheriff’s investigators are still looking for a suspect in the shooting death of a man at Fairview Trailer Park this evening.

The shooting occurred just after 2 p.m. at the trailer park. The victim, a Hispanic male, was not identified as deputies sought to notify his relatives.

“We know the suspect may have fled with a cousin. We are preparing to search the alleged shooter’s residence in the Etha community,” Sheriff Mike Rainey said. “We are still gathering information, but we understand there was an apparent altercation Friday night and it started up again (Saturday),” Rainey said.

The sheriff said a national alert was issued to law enforcement agencies for the suspect, who was also not identified. He was last seen in a black Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck.

Investigators were at the scene of the shooting and had also placed crime-scene tape around the suspect’s residence.
