A man was killed and four others were wounded early Sunday during a shooting at a McDonald’s near Auburn University that doesn’t appear to be random, police said.

Officers responded to the shooting on West Magnolia Ave. just before 2:30 a.m. and found a 20-year-old man dead from gunshot wounds, Auburn Police wrote in a news release.

Four other people, including a 21-year-old Auburn University student, were also injured from the gunfire. A 16-year-old was transported with serious injuries. The student, a 17-and 19-year-old were taken to the hospital with injuries that were not life threatening.

Authorities said they believe the incident was not a random shooting.

“Preliminarily, information has been obtained that an altercation occurred just prior to an exchange of gunfire that resulted in the injuries,” police said.

Just before the shooting, students were celebrating the Auburn Tigers’ football game win over the Alabama State Hornets.

Auburn University’s emergency notification system wrote on its Twitter page that there’s no indication of an active threat to the campus community. Officials urged to report suspicious activity.

The university initially said the suspect is still at large. Police, in an updated news release, did not provide information about the suspect.
