Man Killed in Standoff with Muscle Shoals Police


By Alabama News Network

Police in Muscle Shoals are investigating a standoff that ended with a man's death.

The TimesDaily reports that a man was barricaded inside an apartment on Firestone Avenue during the standoff that lasted more than three hours Wednesday.

Police said it was not known whether the fatal shot was self-inflicted or whether it was from officers when they exchanged gunfire with the man. The man's name wasn't immediately released.

Police said the suspect fired more than 60 times at police, other apartment tenants and bystanders.

Authorities said officers found 39-year-old Christy Jones Gregory shot in a breezeway of the apartment complex. She was flown to Huntsville Hospital, where a hospital spokeswoman said she was treated and released.
