AUBURN, Ala. (AP) – Authorities in Alabama are searching for a man they say shot and wounded three Auburn police officers.
Local and state law enforcement are searching for 29-year-old Grady Wayne Wilkes, who they say is armed and wearing camouflage body armor and a helmet.
An Auburn police release says officers responded late Sunday night to a reported domestic disturbance and were shot at by Grady.
It says three officers were wounded; their conditions weren’t immediately released.
The state Law Enforcement Agency activated a Blue Alert, which is used when officers are killed or critically wounded.

A law enforcement command center has been set at up Auburn University, which is warning students to stay away from a mobile home park about five miles from campus.
