Police are looking for whoever fired 23 shots into a vacant home belonging to Democratic Alabama State Senator Vivian Figures, WSFA reported.
The Mobile Police Department said no one was at the Toulminville home on Thursday at 5 a.m. when the shooting took place, the Associated Press reported.
“At five o’clock that morning, I heard shots ring out and I laid there for a few seconds but I didn’t know whether if I jumped up quick, that a bullet or something may come through the window. I looked out of all the windows to see if I could see anybody walking around or driving but I didn’t see nothing. Just heard the shots.” a neighbor told WSFA.
Mobile police spokesman Lt. Christopher Levy told the AP the shooting “does not appear to be a random act.”
