Alabama Self-Defense: Friday shooting victim was shot in self-defense, Montgomery police say :: 10/01/2019

Montgomery police believe a man fatally shot Friday evening was shot in self-defense after he opened fire on another man during a fight.

Montgomery police on Monday announced they were conducting a death investigation into the Sept. 27 shooting, rather than a homicide investigation. They have not identified the deceased. 

"The circumstances surrounding the shooting initially were unknown," MPD Capt. Regina Duckett said in a release. "Further investigation indicates that the deceased subject fired shots at an adult male during a verbal altercation. That adult male returned fire in self-defense, fatally striking the deceased. The adult male involved in the verbal altercation was not injured."

The shooting occurred around 5:20 p.m. in the 200 block of East Riding Road, a residential street near Crump Park and Peter Crump Elementary School in southeast Montgomery.
