Eufaula Police tell multiple news media that 35-year-old Demarco Rhymes was shot to death after gunfight with police early Saturday. Police say Rhymes shot a 2-year-old in the leg at the Level Acres Mobile Home Park, about 90 miles southeast of Montgomery. Rhymes left the mobile park and shot a 42-year-old woman and a 39-year-old man.

Police say the toddler was taken to Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham for treatment. The two adults are in critical condition at a hospital in Dothan.

Police Chief Steve Watkins says the shootings stem from a domestic dispute. Watkins says officers involved in the shooting have been placed on paid administrative leave, per department policy, pending the investigation outcome.
