BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WALA) - Birmingham authorities are investigating a bizarre gunfight between the Birmingham mayor, his security officers and suspects on Interstate 59.
Officials said Mayor William Bell was on his way home from a fundraiser on Friday night when a man in a Lincoln Town Car faced his direction and opened fire.
Bell's security called police and gave them a description of the suspects' vehicle as they attempted to elude them, officials said.
The Town Car then looped back around in front of the mayor's car and opened fire again.
Security reportedly pursued the car when it crashed into the interstate guard rail and, after an exchange of gunfire, left two of the suspects wounded and another in custody.
