Stoney Sharp reports.

Police in Tuscaloosa are busy investigating three separate shootings that wounded three people Saturday.

One of those shootings involved three Tuscaloosa Police Department officers.

TPD said officers responded to a domestic violence call on 24th Avenue East in Alberta Saturday night.

According to police, a man fired a handgun at officers. Three officers fired back, wounding the suspect. The suspect, who has not been identified, is in critical condition at UAB Hospital. The officers were not injured.

Also Saturday night, police said a man was shot in the lower back outside Rounders Bar on the UA strip. The victim is in the hospital. Officers charged 26-year-old Tamarcus Ikner with attempted murder in that shooting. Police said 37-year-old Kenneth Ikner was in the getaway car and has been charged with first degree assault. Police believe Kenneth Ikner and the victim have an ongoing dispute over a woman.
