A mass shooting occurred at teenager’s birthday party in Alabama, leaving at least four people dead and 20 injured.

A photo taken by a witness showed the bodies of at least six teenagers on the ground, Fox News reported.

Officials have not revealed the exact number of surviving victims.

Police have not announced any arrests in connection with the shooting.

An investigation is underway by Special Agents with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) State Bureau of Investigations (SBI).

Several victims at the hospital had gunshot wounds.

The hospital is a small, rural facility with just 81 beds so some patients have been transferred to other facilities where there are more specialists.

“The investigation is a result of a shooting which occurred at approximately 10:34 p.m. near the 200 Block of Broadnax Street in Dadeville, located in Tallapoosa County. Currently, there have been four confirmed fatalities and multiple injuries,” ALEA said.

“The following agencies responded to the scene and are currently assisting with the investigation: The Dadeville Police Department, Tallapoosa County Sheriff’s Office, Bureau of Alcohol, the Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and the 5 Circuit District Attorney’s Office. Nothing further is available as the investigation is ongoing.”

“This morning, I grieve with the people of Dadeville and my fellow Alabamians. Violent crime has NO place in our state, and we are staying closely updated by law enforcement as details emerge,” Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey, a Republican, said.
