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.— Governor Kay Ivey (@GovernorKayIvey) April 16, 2023
There is no word on a suspect or suspects, or a motive for the incident. Information is extremely scarce at the moment.
A photo has been circulating around the internet that purportedly shows multiple bodies on the floor inside the dance studio, and the floor seems to match that of other photos from inside the studio prior to the shooting.
