The Northport man accused of shooting 17 people at a downtown bar early Tuesday morning told police he wanted to die. “This was an individual that had a series of life-changing events that caused him to lose his touch with reality,” said Tuscaloosa Police Chief Steve Anderson. Nathan Van Wilkins, 44, is accused of opening fire at the Copper Top in Temerson Square at 12:30 a.m., seriously injuring five people who were in the bar. He is suspected of shooting another man at a home in Northport about an hour earlier and then setting fire to his former workplace in Brookwood after leaving Temerson Square. View Source.
