ASHVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who was fatally shot by a police officer in Alabama.

Alabama Law Enforcement Agency spokesman Senior Trooper Chuck Daniel says the shooting occurred Sunday evening and involved an Ashville police officer.

St. Clair County Deputy Coroner Jeremiah Gilreath on Monday identified the man as 41-year-old Nathan Grissom of Ashville. Gilreath says Grissom is white.

Neither police nor the state Bureau of Investigation would release any details about the officer.

Assistant Ashville Police Chief Wendy Brechin said in a statement that Grissom was armed and violated a protection-from-abuse order his wife had filed.

Daniel says the state Bureau of Investigation will turn over its findings to the St. Clair District Attorney’s Office.

Daniel says no additional information is being released.
