UPDATE (11:00 a.m.) – Authorities have confirmed that the individual killed on scene Tuesday night was an intruder in the home.
Foley Police say 20-year-old intruder Sedrick D. Jemison broke three doors with a pick-axe before entering the business, Elite Marine, in Foley.
The business owner, who also lives on the property, was awoken by a “loud crash” and retaliated with a gun. The intruder was shot dead. No arrests have been made.
The business owner is believed to be acting within his rights. The case will be sent to a grand jury.
“The male subject entered his bedroom, wearing a black bandanna on his face and charging towards him, where the homeowner then fired his pistol,” Foley Police said in a press release. “There are no charges against the homeowner as this appears to be a case of self defense.”
Police continue to search for a possible second suspect in the Foley/Gulf Shores area. There’s no information or description on the individual, but evidence from the scene lead police to believe a second person was involved.
No further details are being released at this time.
