EUFAULA, Ala. (WDHN) –A person was wounded following a barrage of random gunfire at an apartment complex in Eufaula Saturday evening.

Eufaula Police responded to an apartment complex in the 2000 block of South Randolph Avenue following reports of gunshots. 

Police discovered multiple gunshots had been fired and one person sustained a wound to the upper body while inside an apartment at the complex. The 64-year-old victim was taken to Medical Center Barbour by private vehicle. The person’s injury does not appear to be life-threatening, police said in a Facebook post Saturday evening.
