Mobile Police Shoot Armed Man

Mobile Police say one man is recovering after being shot by Mobile Police. They say it happened in the 1000 block of Heidi Street late Friday night. An MPD news release says the officers were investigating a report of domestic violence.

“As officers approached the residence on foot, the suspect, a 47 year old male, began firing at them with a semi-automatic handgun,” said an MPD spokesman in a news release. The officers fired back.  The man was hit in the left arm and left side of his chest. He was taken to a hospital for treatment of what police describe as non-life-threatening injuries.
