Drug Suspect Shot Twice After Reportedly Opening Fire on Officers

Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin said a drug suspect was shot and injured around 9:00 Tuesday morning as Etowah County Drug Task Force Agents were attempting to carry out a warrant at 100 Pleasant Hill Cut Off in Boaz.

Two Boaz Officers returned fire after the unnamed suspect fired on them; meanwhile, other agents took cover.  No officers were injured during the incident. The suspect was shot twice and air-lifted to UAB Hospital in Birmingham.  The Oxford Police Department will be heading up that investigation, with the JSU Center for Applied Forensics gathering evidence.
