THEODORE, Alabama — A man shot himself to death during a struggle with police this morning after investigators discovered an elaborate marijuana growing operation in a warehouse on U.S. 90.

Police did not identify the man who died. Another man at the scene, Jeffrey Coolidge, was arrested and charged with trafficking marijuana.

Officers in the area on an unrelated investigation saw a U-Haul truck parked at the loading dock of a brown warehouse with no sign about 8 a.m., police said, and they decided to check on the activity.

CHILTON COUNTY, Alabama -- Chilton County Sheriff Kevin Davis, speaking during a press conference this afternoon, said there is no known motive behind a shooting that left an 11-year-old boy dead and his 15-year-old brother in stable condition.

The boy's mother, Ann Marie Campbell, 34, of Clanton, has been charged with murder and attempted murder, Davis said.

Davis said he has never had to investigate a case of a mother accused of killing her own child.  "Our hearts are saddened ... We all have kids," Davis said. "We can't grasp how this took place."

A statement on the sheriff's webpage provided an account of the incident:

Chilton County E911 Center at 10 a.m. received a call of a shooting in the 3000 block of County Road 69 near Clanton. Davis told reporters he did not know who placed the call.

Ozark police get new Chargers

OZARK — Six. That’s the number of vehicles Ozark Police Officer Dion Robinson said he has gone through in four years at the department due to mechanical problems, vehicle transfers and high mileage.

But with one of the police department’s five new 2011 Dodge Chargers, Robinson doesn’t believe he’ll be changing out any time soon.

A total of $144,435 in funds the city received from the sale of the Ozark tower was used to purchase the vehicles, while an appropriation awarded by formerU.S. Congressman Bobby Bright’s office was used to purchase equipment for the new cars.
