MILLBROOK, AL (WSFA) -

The suspect in an officer-related shooting at a busy Millbrook intersection is being identified. Marcus Dupree Hurry of Monroeville was taken into custody and charged with assault on a Federal Officer. The incident happened around 12:30pm just off Interstate 65 exit 181. 

Elmore County District Attorney Randall Houston said the U.S. Marshal's Gulf Coast Regional Taskforce was involved in the shooting. Houston said the officers were attempting to serve a murder warrant on Hurry out of Monroe County, but he fled.

Clay Ingram, a regular guest on WSFA 12 News' midday show Alabama Live! found himself caught as a witness and innocent bystander in the middle of the crash that lead to Hurry's arrest.

Ingram, an employee with Alabama's AAA, said he had just left the WSFA 12 News studios where he often shares on-air travel advice with viewers. He decided to stop for food off the Millbrook exit. 

Ingram explained that he was waiting to get back onto Interstate 65 north, and when he got a green arrow he turned left onto the I-65 entrance ramp. It was then he says a car coming from the opposite direction ran a red light and collided with his vehicle.

Ingram said he believes law enforcement was trying to stop the other driver. Suddenly, Ingram says shots began ringing out from U.S. Marshals.

Because the incident is under investigation, there isn't much that Alabama State Troopers can release at this time. Sgt. Steve Jarrett could only confirm that the Alabama Bureau of Investigation is investigating after an officer-related shooting involving U.S. Marshals.

U.S. Marshals would add that a task force was working a warrant out of the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, and that they're cooperating with ABI on its investigation.

As for Ingram, he says he has a few bumps and bruises, but he is ok.

Hurry will have his first court appearance Wednesday in Judge Terry Moorer's courtroom.

A final report from ABI will ultimately be handed over to the Elmore County Grand Jury.
