(AUBURN, Ala.) -- A manhunt is underway for an Alabama man who allegedly shot and killed three Auburn University students and wounded three others when he pulled a gun to settle a dispute at an off-campus party, police said.
Auburn Police Chief Tommy Dawson said he signed three warrants charging Desmonte Leonard, 22, with capital murder. He warned that Leonard should be considered "armed and extremely dangerous."
Leonard was last seen on foot, and police believe he is still in Montgomery County. Two former Auburn football players, Ladarious Phillips and Ed Christian, and another man identified as Demario Pitts were killed in the shooting on Saturday night.
Current Auburn football player Eric Mack and Xavier Moss and John Robertson were wounded, Dawson said. Robertson was undergoing surgery for a gunshot wound to the head and "fighting for his life," Dawson said.
All six victims were under 21-years-old.
The police chief said the only connection between the university football team and the shooting was that the players happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time.
