TUSCUMBIA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama police chief says a suspect was shot and killed during a shootout with officers responding to reports of suspicious activity in a neighborhood.
Tuscumbia Police Chief Tony Logan confirms officers were dispatched to an apartment complex just before 4 a.m. Tuesday after receiving a call about someone banging on doors.
Officers spotted a suspect they believed was involved, and the person fired shots and ran away. Logan says the suspect was hit and killed in an exchange of gunfire with officers after a short foot chase.
The suspect and officers haven’t been identified. The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the case.
