Manhunt after 3 shot dead at Alabama mobile home community

Lever from the Gardendale Alabama Police Department

Law enforcement authorities may not know the exact reason Kenneth Dion Lever shot dead three people in a Gardendale home this morning.

The fatal shooting happened in the block of 4100 Willow Bend Drive within the Peachtree Crossings mobile home community.

Gardendale police released a photo of a potential suspect in a Facebook post and told residents to stay inside while they looked for a man described as an active shooter.

Police in the Birmingham area are looking for 52-year-old Kenneth Dion Lever. They told who see him not to approach him and call 9-1-1 immediately, as he's considered armed and unsafe.

Local media reported that charges had been made against Lever involving sexual abuse of a minor in the past and that his ex-wife had applied for a court order to keep Lever away.

Lever was booked in Santa Rosa County in 2015 for an out-of-state fugitive warrant that originated from York, Pennsylvania on charges related to a child sex crime.

A Jefferson County judge in December issued protection from abuse order against Lever.

The ripple effect of the Avery Bradley-Marcus Morris trade
Bradley is entering the final season of a four-year contract, so it's not clear if he can be a long-term solution for Detroit. The Celtics are weaker on the perimeter, though Marcus Smart can handle some of Bradley's defensive responsibilities.

Police said that during the alleged assault, Lever made the girl watch pornographic films and forced her to perform the acts they watched in the movies.

Police also reported that his vehicle is a black 2007 Lincoln Navigator with a Florida tag 689NFN. She claimed that he was stalking and harassing her and her 11-year-old daughter.

Lever was placed in York County Prison on October 12, 2015, on the first case on a $100,000 bond, but was able to get bailed out.

'My daughter has a different disposition when she returns home, ' the woman wrote in the complaint.

Adding, 'She is very clingy to me and will not let me leaver her.

The accused was about to face trial in Pennsylvania in September for having a sexual intercourse with a child, according to court records.
