GORDO, Ala. (WTVA) — New Pickens County, Alabama, Sheriff Todd Hall said he was involved in a shooting Wednesday.

ABC 33/40 in Birmingham reported the shooting happened at the Grandview Gardens Apartments in Gordo.

A man said his uncle was the shooting victim who was taken to a hospital in Tuscaloosa.

"What everybody is saying is they drew down on him and they used force because he wouldn't open his door, and I just don't understand any of it," said Mondriga Stansel.

The local district attorney is expected to release more information. 

In the meantime, state investigators are looking into what happened.
