WKRG is reporting that two officers have been fired upon by a man who has barricaded himself inside a mobile home. The News crew from channel 5 found itself about a quarter of a mile away from the situation as it developed posting a FB live video of the situation.
Sheriff Hoss believes the situation to be contained, but not resolved at this moment though several tear gas canisters have been fired into the home.
An Alabama Law Enforcement helicopter has also arrived in order to provide air support in case the suspect tries to make a run for it.
The situation is continuing to develop.
We must keep the men and women of our police departments in continual prayer! Thank God they are out there protecting us from people wanting to do harm.
