CULLMAN COUNTY, Ala. (WIAT) — One person is dead following a shooting at Good Hope Campground, according to Cullman County Coroner Jeremy Kilpatrick.

There are few details available at this time, but Adam Clark, public relations official with Cullman police, confirmed the shooting involved an officer. He refused to reveal whether the officer shot the victim.

A social media post by the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office on Friday said that incident was “involving the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA). This was an isolated incident, and there is no threat to the community at this time.”

A statement from the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency released Friday night said that the shooting occurred around 1:30 p.m. on Aug. 6. The statement also identified the deceased as Nathan Larry Parsons, 49, of Gardendale. ALEA’s statement, like Cullman Sheriff’s, did not clarify whether the officer involved in the incident shot Parsons.
