Two people are dead and a police officer is wounded after a shooting in Anniston. It all started around 2:30 this afternoon on High Street in the Blue Mountain area. Police Chief Shane Denham says investigators received a call about a woman unconscious in the street. When officers arrived, they found the woman was dead.
Police say that while working the crime scene, a man arrived at the home, pulled out a weapon, and shot an investigator point-blank in the abdomen. Police returned fire, killing the man. Denham says they have a lot of work to do on this case.
The officer is expected to be okay. Denham says they will not release any names of victims or suspected shooters at this time. We will have more information as it becomes available.
