Update: Alleged Burglar Shot in East Montgomery

Montgomery police now identify a man shot over the weekend by an off-duty police officer as 30-year-old Richard Cole of Montgomery. He is listed in stable condition at Baptist Medical Center South.

The gunshot rang out Saturday in an otherwise peaceful east Montgomery neighborhood.

Police say Cole parked his pick-up truck in front of the officer's house and walked into the back yard. The unidentified officer then confronted Cole, who was eventually shot in the stomach.

James Ladd lives next door. While waxing his car, he says he heard the two men arguing the street.

"I saw these two men out in the middle of the street going back and forth verbally," he says.

So Ladd went back to his waxing. About five minutes later, he says he heard a gunshot.

When he went to his window, he saw Cole lying in the street and the off-duty officer standing over him. He says the officer had a gun in one hand and a cell phone in the other.

Because the incident involved a police officer, the Alabama Bureau of Investigation is taking over the case.

But local police did do some of the initial investigating -- talking to a letter carrier who also witnessed the shooting, and speaking to other neighbors in the Woodmere subdivision.
