more to the minute Information as we get it.

 

At 6:30   The IRT Team is now making Entry.

They have received orders NOT to use

Lethal Force unless needed.

Rounds have been fired as well as Teargas launched.

Apparently shots were fired in house.

WKNI is on the scene.We'll update soon.

UPDATED 7pm

 

From what little information WKNI TV 25 News team could gather Officially, Mid afternoon a call went out for a possible suicide attempt was called in from a 3rd party, While the dispatcher was on the phone she heard a "Shotgun" blast and reported that to the responding units. After initial units arrived the individual inside the home refused to come out and was talking on the phone with a 3rd party. It was later reported by a neighbor that he heard several shots from inside the house. IRT team was called in and after what seemed to be surveillance and briefings two teams deployed in full body armor and tactical weapons. WKNI TV 25 was able to monitor the teams command as they were given orders to deploy Gas and to not use leathle force unless needed. The command directed the team to deploy several more rounds of gas into the house and after 15 miniutes or so the suspect came out with a Cell Phone in his hand. No other information from Andalusia Police Department was made available to WKNI TV 25. Chief Williams was unavailable to comment according to the Dispacther at the police department.

(Side note)It is our policy to not respond to suicide attempts or calls. However with as many as two dozen police officers responding and several residential blocks blocked off, It was our thought to respond and report what was happening as responsible media should. The lack of OPEN communications between Andalusia Police Department continues to widen and leaves one to wonder why. We hope the best for the man that was involved in this and hope that he gets the help he needs.

AUBURN, Alabama -- A judge rejected youthful offender treatment for former Auburn football players Dakota Mosley and Antonio Goodwin today.

Shaun Kitchens's request was denied Monday.

A fourth defendant, Mike McNeil, is too old to be eligible for youthful offender status.

The four former Auburn football players are accused of robbing a residence at a trailer park off Wire Road in Auburn.

Testimony this afternoon in the State House vote-buying case focused on a ledger that tracked Milton McGregor's contributions to political action committees.

The bookkeeper for Fine and Geddie and Associates lobbying firm testified that two contributions to Rep. Barry Mask, R-Wetumpka, originally were listed on internal records as coming from McGregor. But she later changed the records to indicate that the money came from other clients.

Prosecutors have accused lobbyist Bob Geddie of obstruction of justice claiming he falsified the ledgers that were turned over to a grand jury. But Geddie's lawyer suggested the ledgers were corrected because of an honest mistake that was caught and fixed within days.

KKK flyers have authorities on watch

It’s been more than a decade since the last Ku Klux Klan rally in Houston County. But the recent distribution of more than 40 KKK flyers has local authorities on the watch.

Houston County Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Donald Valenza said there were 33 Ku Klux Klan flyers distributed to homes across Houston County over the past week. Valenza said there were reportedly 16 flyers distributed at homes in Gordon and 17 in Kinsey. Valenza said someone apparently threw a paper flyer wrapped around some gravel with a rubber band into the yard of area homes.

Dothan Police Sgt. Rachel David said the Dothan Police Department received eight similar reports from over the weekend of flyers which promoted the KKK. David said the flyers were considered hate crimes, and would be investigated by the FBI.

On 06-20-2011 Huan Doan turned himself in at the Marianna Police Department on a warrant issued for his arrest on 4-13 2011 on the charge of aggravated stalking.  The suspect had been aware of the warrant for the last two months, but had fled the area and the state to avoid arrest.  He did however become aware that the Marianna Police Department had asked the United States Marshal Service to assist in locating and making an arrest no matter where he might hide.

2:31 pm. Court Resumes with Mr. Junkins.


You saw me come into your office and interview people involved in this case. Did you just panic when you were asked who your lawyer was? You got a call from somebody, I think you said the FBI? Either that or ABI..You told them I was your lawyer? Yes sir that was the only name I could think of. You just kind of panicked on that question? Yes sir.

I am not sure when I received it but I do remember when I received it I thought I only have two weeks to gather that information. And did you gather that information was it to the best of your knowledge that you gathered all of those documents? Yes maam.

And do you realize that Mr. Geddy is charged with obstruction of justice for intentionally turning over falsified documents to the Grand Jury? I don’t know that. Every writing on those ledgers is in your hand. Did he tell you change any of those ledgers in preparation for getting those ledgers to the grand jury? No sir not that I remember. Let’s start with Great Southern. On the last entry on that page from Tel Pac. Can you look at this ledger and tell me when you made that entry? Either on February 15 or in the next day or two. The next entry was on February 18 so I did that entry between the 15 and the entry on the 18. Did Mr. Geddy or anyone else ever tell you to go back and change that entry? No sir.
