TUSCALOOSA, AL (WSFA) -

One of the 17 individuals injured in the Tuscaloosa shooting early Tuesday morning says he's from Opp. Riley Dunn is a senior studying civil engineering at the University of Alabama. Dunn suffered a leg injury in the shootings.

Dunn said he was watching a pool tournament at the Copper Top bar when the shooter started firing into the building. He was struck by shrapnel or fragments during the incident. He was wearing bandages on his leg.

The UA student said he saw the unidentified shooter walking with an assault rifle. "He just started opening up," Dunn remembered.

The victim recalls seeking rocks, smoke and sparks  coming up off the ground. "It was like kicking an ant bed," he said.

"I'm mighty blessed," Dunn explained, quickly adding that the event is not the University of Alabama.
