BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — A man has died after being shot over the weekend in Alabama.

The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as 22-year-old Devin Darnell Crowell. He was 22.

Al.com reported Crowell was shot early Sunday in Birmingham. He was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead. Crowell was kept at the hospital until Tuesday because he was an organ donor.

Birmingham police have not announced any arrests in Crowell’s death.

Crowell’s death is the 86th homicide in Alabama’s largest city. Police say the city is on pace to have one of its highest homicide counts since the 1990s.

Birmingham reported 113 violent deaths in 1996.
