From staff reports
BIRMINGHAM – Six people, four of which are UAB students, were robbed at gunpoint inside the University House Apartments on 3rd Avenue South on Tuesday.
The investigation is ongoing for three suspects – black males – who violently stole items from four students and two non-students. According to reports, two of the victims were struck.
The university informed students of the incident and stated that a search was beginning for a group of four black males that had fled the scene.
UAB has since taken extra precautions in the area, increasing the presence of law enforcement and cutting their partnership with the University House Apartment complex.
