Police shoot, kill man in Tallassee

Posted by: John Shryock - bio | email

TALLASSEE, AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is working a fatal shooting case involving Tallassee Police officers. Authorities say the shooting happened at a public housing complex Highway 229 south of downtown just after noon Tuesday.

Tallassee Police officers were attempting to serve a murder warrant on a suspect when another man allegedly came outside and started an altercation with the officers. The officers say at some point he pulled a gun on them.

The officers then fired on the man, identified as Michael McIntyre, killing him on the scene. No warrant was being issued for McIntyre and his reasons for allegedly pulling a gun are not known at this time. 

McIntyre's family says there are a lot more questions than answers. Elmore County Sheriff Bill Franklin says there are a lot of professionals working the case and answers will be found.

The ABI's involvement in the case is standard procedure when any officer is involved in a shooting. The case will ultimately be turned over to the Elmore County District Attorney's office.
