The Madison County coroner has reported that the man shot outside an apartment complex Wednesday afternoon has died as a result of his injuries.

Major Jim Cooke with the Madison Police Department said there are four scenes possibly involved in the investigation, and between 2-4 suspects based on witness accounts. 

Officials said Bradley Hayes was shot outside the Carrington Cove Apartments after 1 p.m. Wednesday, and was transported to Huntsville Hospital in serious condition. Officials at Carrington Cove released a memo to their residents stating that the individuals involved are not residents of the complex. Madison Police said this is the first shooting they've had in the city in years.

"Of course we train for that, and this is our first shooting in several years. We are prepared to handle any type of investigation in the city," said Cooke.

The sight of police cars and news of the violence scared people who live in the complex they called quiet.

"I would describe this area as you can walk wherever you want to," said Jameka Grinder.  "I think this is a pretty friendly neighborhood I wouldn't think anything like this could happen."

Late Wednesday night, the coroner confirmed that the man who was shot had died.

Friends of Hayes said he was a young, easygoing guy and wouldn't normally be involved in something like this. Kirsten Moore said, "He was a very good person, he wouldn't hurt anybody. I don't even think he'd be in an argument, I never heard him argue with anybody or anything."

The shooting is still under investigation.
