A person of interest is in custody this morning being questioned by police, according to Lt. Sean Edwards with the Birmingham Police Department.

Police say a Birmingham officer was fatally shot in the west area of the city Saturday night.

It happened after 10 p.m. near the corner of Avenue Y and the 2500 block of Bush Boulevard.

Official and specific details about what led to the shooting have not yet been released.

Alabama's 13 news photographer Adam Holbein reported that a large number of investigators and police units were on the scene last night.

K-9 units were also being used to track the suspect.

Many roads were closed as officers actively searched the area for the suspect.
