The Baldwin County Major Crimes Unit is asking for the public's help after 18 people were shot Saturday evening at an event in Stockton.

Of those shot, three were killed. Investigators believe an argument led to the shooting.

First responders were called to the scene just after 9:30 p.m. They said local residents hosted the May Day event in an open field off Upper Bryan’s Landing Road.

Multiple agencies responded, including the Baldwin County Sheriff’s Office, the Bay Minette Police Department, the Loxley Police Department, Coastal Alabama Community College Police, and the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency.

There were about 1,000 people in attendance when deputies said at least one person opened fire into the crowd. However, they believe there could have been more shooters.

No arrests have been announced, and investigators have not identified the victims. They are asking for the public’s help.

“This is a tragic event that touches many lives in our community,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement. “We are working very hard to bring this case to a resolution, but we cannot make arrests or successfully prosecute the offenders without help.”

Information and video from the event can be submitted to the sheriff’s office by calling 251-972-8589.
