BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Alabama authorities say they’ve arrested a man suspected of fatally shooting his girlfriend and wounding four of their eight children in Birmingham.

Police Chief A.C. Roper discussed the arrest but didn’t give the man’s name during a news conference Thursday.

The coroner’s office identified the victim as 34-year-old Coral Anita Wilson.

Officers arrested the man after finding him sleeping in a car near the scene of the shooting, which happened Wednesday night.

All four children are hospitalized in stable condition. A 12-year-old child is described as having life-threatening injuries, but the others suffered less-severe wounds.

Four other children at the house weren’t injured.

Police say the shooting followed a domestic disturbance. A court previously ordered the man to stay away from Wilson.
