ELSANOR, Ala. (WPMI) — Chaos erupted in Baldwin County Sunday morning as hundreds fled for their lives after shots were fired at a crowded house party.

It happened around 1 a.m. at a home rented through Airbnb in the Elsanor community for a graduation party.

One person, 21-year-old Dominique Marshall, was shot and killed.

Investigators say there was a shootout between multiple people, and Marshall was hit in the crossfire.

Others from the party put Marshall in a vehicle to try and get help, investigators say. They ended up parking along the side of Baldwin Beach Express near the scene, where Marshall died.

Marshall’s father told us he is at a loss for words. He said this wasn’t normal for Marshall, and he is still searching for answers.

Marshall leaves behind a son and many friends and family.
