Alabama police sergeant killed, another officer injured after confronting car burglary suspect

The shooting occurred when an undercover officer and a uniformed sergeant encountered a pair of car burglary suspects just before 2 a.m. Birmingham Police Chief Patrick Smith said one suspect pulled a gun and opened fire after being confronted by the officers.

Carter had been with the department since 2011 and was promoted to sergeant in February 2018.

Smith said one suspect was injured in the shooting and taken to the hospital for treatment. The second suspect was taken into custody.

The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating.

Carter, who is survived by his wife and children, is the first Birmingham officer killed in the line of duty in more than 14 years. On June 17, 2004, three officers were shot and killed while serving a drug warrant. It was the deadliest day in department history.
