|Scene of shooting at Birmingham Walmart (source)|
A sheriff's deputy broke up a drug deal in the parking lot of a Walmart store in Birmingham, Alabama, when one of the suspects tried to run him over. The deputy then fired at the driver, hitting him.
From an article and news video:
Chief Deputy Randy Christian with the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office says 21-year-old Devante Kyshon Hinds of Birmingham was fleeing the scene of a drug deal deputies had just broken up when he tried to run over a deputy with a car. The deputy opened fire, hitting Hinds. The incident took place shortly after 9 p.m. in the parking lot of Walmart on Parkway East.
Investigators have been able to confirm through evidence and questioning that the others involved in the drug deal were meeting Hughes to buy heroin, and that the deputies were justified in the shooting, according to Christian.
