A drive-by shooting outside an Ensley motorcycle club late Saturday night left one man dead.

The shots rang out just before 11 p.m. in the 1700 block of Avenue D. Birmingham police responded to the scene on a report of a person shot and found the man unresponsive in the roadway.

The victim, whose name has not been released, was taken to UAB Hospital’s Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead within an hour.

Witnesses reported multiple shots were fired. Birmingham police roped off a wide perimeter, and a large street block party a couple of blocks away continued and was not involved in the shooting, police said.

Officer Rod Mauldin said the investigation shows shots were fired from a mid-size sedan that passed by the location. Police radios issued lookout bulletins for the vehicle shortly after the shooting.

The homicide was the second to happen in the city since Friday. Early Friday, a victim was found dead about 7:15 a.m. in 700 block of Antwerp Avenue. The discovery was made in a grassy area near railroad tracks. Police have not identified the victim nor said how she or he died. Prior to that homicide, the city had 14 days without a killing.

Saturday night’s victim is the 60th person to die in 2019 as a result of homicide. Of those, at least seven have been ruled justifiable and one died this year from a shooting that happened in 2018. In all of Jefferson County, there have been 90 slayings, including the 60 in Birmingham.
