Alabama shooting prompts manhunt near Birmingham

Authorities are searching for an armed man following a shooting at an Alabama mobile home community near Birmingham.
   
Gardendale police released a photo of a potential suspect in a Facebook post and told residents to stay inside Wednesday morning while they looked for a man described as an active shooter.
   
Birmingham-area news outlets reported that three people had been killed, but police didn't immediately return messages seeking comment.
   
The search was focused in woods near the Peachtree Crossings mobile home community.
   
A worker who answered the phone at the mobile home community declined comment, citing instructions from law enforcement.
