MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The immunity hearing for Montgomery Police Officer Aaron Cody Smith, who is charged with murder for the death of Gregory Gunn in 2016, has ended with a judge denying the officer immunity.

The defense argued Smith acted in self-defense when he shot and killed Gunn while on duty. Defense attorneys Roianne Conners and Mickey McDermott used Alabama’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law as a defense, the first time a law enforcement officer has used it as a defense in the state.
