In the first accusations, a 5-year-old female victim told police at the time, in June 2005, that Lever, who was her neighbor, had molested her, documents obtained by the York Dispatch said.
Police in Gardendale identified Kenneth Dion Lever, 52, as the suspected gunman in the incident, and they've started a manhunt to locate him. Authorities urge anyone who sees him to consider him armed and unsafe.
Three people were shot to death early Wednesday (July 12) and the gunman is on the loose in a suburb north of Birmingham, Ala., AL.com reported. The Florida man is suspected in the fatal shootings of three adults in an apparent domestic dispute Wednesday morning. Lever is accused of sexually abusing a young girl for than five years beginning in 2005 and sometimes forcing a young boy to participate. According to the department, a protection from abuse order was issued against Lever in Jefferson County just past year.
Police Chief Mike Walker identified the dead as 50-year-old Dana Reeves Lever, Kenneth Lever's ex-wife; her sister, Bonnie Reeves Foshee, 65, and Bonnie Foshee's husband, 69-year-old Don Austin Foshee.
Lever might be in a black Lincoln Navigator with a Florida license plate, police said.
The Lower Windsor Township Police Department also arrested Lever in two separate sexual assault cases on September 28 and October 13, 2015, according the York Daily Record.
