Tuscaloosa Police are investigating a shooting at a gas station following Saturday's football game between LSU and Alabama.  It happened around 2:37 Sunday morning at the Shell gas station, located at Skyland Boulevard and Greensboro Avenue.  Police say two men taunted an Alabama fan hours after Alabama beat LSU.  One of the men pulled a gun and the 30 year old victim tried to grab the gun from his vehicle.  Moments later, shots were fired and the Alabama fan was shot in the leg. 

The  unidentified victim was treated at a local hospital.  His injuries are not life threatening.  Sergeant Dale Phillips of the Tuscaloosa County Metro Homicide Unit says he does not know if the suspects are LSU fans.
