BIRMINGHAM POLICE OFFICER THAT
SENT ONE MAN TO THE HOSPITAL. IAN: SARAH KILLIAN JOINS US LIVE
FROM POLICE HEADQUARTERS. DO WE KNOW EXACTLY WHAT

AGENCY IS TRYING TO FIGURE OUT. BECAUSE THIS INVOLVED A

NIGHT. ONE OF THEIR POLICE OFFICERS WAS
AT THIS VILLAGE HOUSING COMPLEX
IN THEIR NORMAL CONTROL WHEN
THEY HEARD MULTIPLE GUNSHOTS. THEY WENT TO INVESTIGATE AND
THAT IS WHEN THEY ENCOUNTERED A

THAT POLICE OFFICER, SO THAT
POLICE OFFICER FIRED HIS WEAPON. THE SUSPECT WAS SHOT, HE WAS
