BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 20-year-old man has been shot and killed outside an AutoZone in Birmingham.

News outlets report that Birmingham police say Chancey Harper was found dead in the parking lot of the store on Monday afternoon.

Police Lt. Sean Edwards says an off-duty officer in the area heard shots fired and went to the scene, where he found the victim with gunshot wounds.

Edwards says several children were also in the area during the shooting, which happened not far from a high school that had just let out for the day.

Edwards says investigators believe the man was shot behind the store, and that the victim then ran before collapsing in the front parking lot.

Police say they don’t believe any of those involved are students.
