BIRMINGHAM: A man brandishing a gun was shot to death by Birmingham police at a motel on U.S. 280 Thursday night.
Birmingham police were called to the Days Inn at 6:25 p.m.after several motel guests reported a suspicious person in the parking lot with a gun, said Birmingham police spokesman Lt. Sean Edwards.
The armed man - an adult white male - was walking around the parking and possibly passed by, or went to, several rooms. Officers arrived on the scene and engaged the suspect.
"We knew he had a firearm and he was given commands and really didn't comply with those commands,'' Edwards said.
