The Jefferson County coroner’s office identified the victim as Carl Sanford Gardner. He was 47.
Gardner was killed Saturday night in a drive-by shooting outside an Midtown Iron motorcycle club. The shots rang out just before 11 p.m. in the 1700 block of Avenue D. Birmingham police responded to the scene on a report of a person shot and found Gardner unresponsive in the roadway.
He was taken to UAB Hospital’s Trauma Center where he was pronounced dead at 11:26 p.m.. Authorities said the suspect or suspects opened fire into a crowd standing outside the club.
