BIRMINGHAM –Violence erupted in Birmingham’s Lakeview district early Sunday morning leaving one dead and two men wounded after a shootout in the street in front of the Babalu restaurant. The shooting took place at corner of 29th Street South and 7th Avenue South.
According to WBRC, the Birmingham police believe an argument involving a city sanitation worker may have led to the shooting.
