The footage captured two cars driving down the street before the sound of at least 10 gunshots was heard.
Police said that after interviewing several witnesses and reviewing surveillance footage, they identified 21-year-old college player Miles and 20-year-old Michael Lynn Davis as suspects in the shooting.
Miles and David were arrested in the shooting in an area near the Tuscaloosa campus known as “The Strip,” Tuscaloosa Police Capt. Jack Kennedy said, according to The New York Post.
The two suspects were charged with capital murder.

Jamea Jonae Harris, 23, of Birmingham, was hit by one of the rounds and died, police said.
One of the suspects was reportedly injured when someone in his car also opened fire.
“At this time, it appears that the only motive was a minor altercation these individuals had with the victim while on the Strip,” Kennedy told reporters.
He said that Miles and Harris were not in a previous relationship. Neither Harris nor Davis are affiliated with the university.
The 21-year-old suspect appeared to be crying during a walk by the offender caught on video posted by AL.com.
Miles’ biography has been removed from the University of Alabama athletic department website, AI.com reported.
“First of all, we extend our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim of last night’s incident. We have been made aware of the recent charge against student athlete Darius Miles, and he is no longer a member of the Alabama men’s basketball team,” UA Athletics said in a statement, according to the outlet.
The university also issued a statement saying that its “top priority is the safety and well-being of the campus community. We are sorry for the incident that occurred near campus last night and express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim.”
Miles, who is from Washington, DC, played forward and was reportedly benched during the team’s game against Louisiana State University on Saturday due to an ankle injury.
