SPD investigating multiple shots fired calls that left one man shot


SYLACAUGA, Ala. – After responding to multiple reports of shots fired late Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning, the Sylacauga Police Department is asking for help to find the person responsible.

On Tuesday, March 2, around 8:15 p.m., SPD responded to a shots fired call at the Sonic fast food restaurant. Video obtained from the business shows a person approach from the rear of the building and walk towards the patio seating area. Video shows the subject pull a firearm from his waist band and begin firing at a black female standing in the patio area.  Multiple rounds were fired at the female and the person retreated in the same direction from which he came.

SPD says there were no injuries reported in the incident, however the ceiling above the patio and other parts of the awning did have damage where it was struck by the rounds fired.

Another shots fired call early this morning led SPD the area of 85 Chestnut Street.  On arrival, SPD officers found one victim, 30-year-old Ryan Anthony Gamble, inside the residence at 85 Chestnut St., suffering from a single gunshot wound to the leg.  Gamble was transported to CVMC Emergency Department for treatment and then taken to UAB with non-life threating injuries.

Both shooting incidents remain under investigation by SPD Investigations division.  If anyone has any information about either incident we ask that you please contact us at the numbers below.  Your information could possibly help us save a life.
