Officers fatally shoot man who fired at them outside Walmart

TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) — Officers shot and killed a man who police say opened fire on them outside a Walmart in Alabama. A second person was found dead in the man’s car.

State Bureau of Investigation Lt. Jon Riley says the officers were responding to a call reporting a possible kidnapping about 4:30 a.m. Wednesday in Talladega.

Al.com reports the man and the person whom he was accused of abducting were found dead in his vehicle. Riley says authorities don’t know if the suspect and victim knew each other.

One officer was shot and another was injured, but not by gunfire. They’re both expected to recover.
