BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - State officials are probing a fatal shooting by Homewood police who were serving a drug warrant in Birmingham.

Department spokesman Andrew Didcoct tells Al.com (https://bit.ly/1AdkeJJ) officers serving a warrant at an apartment Friday morning fatally shot a man who fired at police as they entered the unit.

The man was taken to University of Alabama Birmingham Hospital and was later pronounced dead. Authorities say a second man in the apartment is in police custody.

The man’s identity hasn’t been released and the Alabama Bureau of Investigation is probing the shooting.
