Authorities in Montgomery have left a home where they believed the man charged with fatally shooting three people near Auburn University might have been hiding.

Law enforcement swarmed the scene Monday afternoon, firing tear gas and sending a tactical team on forays inside the home as they searched for Desmonte Leonard.

But around 2:25 a.m. Tuesday, an Associated Press photographer
on the scene saw all law enforcement agents that had been there
leave without comment. It wasn't immediately clear why they left.

Authorities say Leonard is charged with three counts of capital
murder in a shooting Saturday night during a pool party at University Heights apartments. He's also accused of wounding three others. The dead included two former Auburn football players.
