Two people are dead after being shot in the parking lot of a Taco Bell restaurant in Guntersville Thursday night.

According to Guntersville Police Chief Jim Peterson, the shooter is in police custody at Marshall Medical North being treated for minor injuries. 

Police have yet to determine any motive for the shooting. Peterson said, though details are limited this early in the investigation, he did not think either the shooter or the victims had any connection to Guntersville. Their identities have yet to be released.

The large police presence at the Taco Bell on U.S. Highway 431 and May Street in Guntersville is expected to remain on scene throughout the night as they continue to investigate. Multiple other agencies are assisting.
