Officials say they tried to negotiate with Chamblee, but he pointed a handgun at officers. They say he has prior charges, including for theft and burglary. 

According to the sheriff's office, the officers used "reasonable, necessary and appropriate" force, and there is no reason to believe any charges will come out of this. The officers were wearing body cameras at the time. 

The State Bureau of Investigation is still handling the case. It has the footage from the body cameras and will decide whether or not to release it.



New information is set to be revealed Thursday on a deadly shooting involving multiple agencies in Marshall County.

The sheriff’s office is holding a news conference in Albertville.

We know multiple agencies responded to the shooting Monday morning.

The Marshall County Sheriff's Office said officers shot and killed a suspect involved in a domestic incident in Boaz. It happened on Lazy Creek Circle, and none of the officers were injured.

The State Bureau of Investigation is working on the case after the Marshall County Sheriff's Office and police requested help.

When the investigation is done, they'll hand their findings over to the Marshall County District Attorney's Office.
