Video: Gordo Eviction Notice Ignites into Firefight
GORDO, Ala. (WCBI) — The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is now handling a case in Gordo in which a police officer reportedly shot a suspect.
It happened around 2:15 Monday afternoon at the Grandview Apartments.
Pickens County Sheriff David Abston says deputies had been at the complex earlier to serve 76-year-old James Corder with an eviction notice.
Gordo police were later called to the complex after neighbors complained of loud music.
Corder reportedly shot at officers, and they returned gunfire, injuring him.
Corder is being treated at UAB Hospital. No officers were injured in the incident.
