A Montgomery police officer was involved in a deadly shooting yesterday on the city’s west side. The incident began when police responded to a report of a subject shot in the 16-hundred block of Westcott Street. Emergency personnel found a victim with a serious gunshot wound. The unidentified man was taken to a local hospital. Moments later officers discovered the suspect at the intersection of Hill and Jordan Streets. During that encounter, shots were fired. Police spokesperson Capt. Regina Duckett says an officer received a non-life threatening gunshot wound…and the suspect was killed.
Since the shooting involved a police officer, the State Bureau of Investigation has taken over the case. No names have been released.
