Police say three adults slain at a mobile home park near Birmingham, Alabama, were killed in an apparent domestic dispute.

Gardendale Police Chief Mike Walker says everyone involved in the deadly shooting Wednesday morning was related. He says others outside the family aren’t believed to be in danger.

Authorities from multiple agencies and a helicopter were involved in the search for a man police identified as 52-year-old Kenneth Dion Lever of the Pensacola, Florida, area.

Walker told reporters that authorities believe the man has left the area and could be headed back toward his home in the Florida Panhandle.

Authorities searched for an armed man Wednesday following a shooting at an Alabama mobile home community near Birmingham.

Gardendale police released a photo of a potential suspect in a Facebook post and told residents to stay inside while they looked for a man described as an active shooter.

Birmingham-area news outlets reported three people had been killed, but police didn’t immediately return messages seeking comment.

The search for a man police identified as Kenneth Dion Lever, 52, of Pensacola, Florida, initially focused in woods near the Peachtree Crossings mobile home community, but police later said they believed he had left the area.

Lever might be in a black Lincoln Navigator with a Florida license plate, police said.

A worker who answered the phone at the mobile home community declined comment, citing instructions from law enforcement.

Court records show a judge issued an order in December telling Lever to stay away from ex-wife Dana Lever and their daughter, a juvenile. Dana Lever sought the protective order claiming the man was stalking and harassing them, records show.

Separately, charges against Lever involving sexual abuse of a minor were filed in York County, Pennsylvania, according to the request from Dana Lever.

A hearing in the Alabama case is scheduled for July 26, a court docket showed.
