Shots fired into occupied buildings is a trend

Mobile has seen its fair share of shots being fired into occupied buildings and cars. The city reportedly has the second-highest number of those crimes in the state.

Alabama representative of District 103, Barbra Drummond (D), introduced House Bill 174, which would increase the punishment for shooting into occupied and unoccupied buildings and cars.

Mobile County Sheriff Paul Burch, Mobile Police Chief Paul Prine, and other law enforcement and city officials have expressed support for the bill.
