MONTGOMERY, Ala. (WSFA) - Montgomery police say a shooting Sunday, which resulted in a woman’s death, was self-defense.

According to Sgt. Jarrett Williams, officers were called to the 2400 block of Crossway Drive on a report that someone had been shot. Once there, they found a woman suffering from a gunshot wound.

Williams says the woman was taken to Baptist Medical Center South where she was later pronounced dead.

An initial investigation, Williams says, has determined the woman was shot in self-defense. The case is expected to be presented to a grand jury as a possible justifiable homicide.

Four people were detained for questioning at the scene, but no arrests have been made.

The identify of the woman has not been released.
