A man remained hospitalized in stable condition this morning after being shot by police during a weekend chase through three north Alabama counties, authorities said. The man, whose names hasn’t been released, was shot by Albertville police officers on Sunday evening. Chief Jamie Smith said the man tried to crash a vehicle into the officers, who fired multiple rounds, wounding the man.

Ron Kent: Officers firing in a vehicle is unacceptable.What if there was a child on board in the back seat and the officers could not see them. I understand the officers needed to get him stopped but they should have found a better way then slinging lead.The officers today sure can make idiot decisions when under pressure. JS

cool kid blog's: Some departments do not allow high speed chases unless it's a dangerous criminal. Why not shoot out tires instead of accidently killing an innocent person?

Kadono Qlim: What if the car was stolen & a child were in it? Let the spike strips do what they are meant to do.

memvp: I Havnt heard of a car keeps driving after it hits those spike strips those things shred your tires down completely gone too the tire rims.

I really don't think most officers are trained properly do be chasing vehichles in high pursuit! I understand the urgency of trying to stop said vehichle but better, more modern tatics need to be in play. There's just got to be a safer way somehow. 🤷🏽‍♀️

Do you people not understand they TRIED to stop him several times! He had no intentions of stopping no matter if he hurt or killed anyone. We don't know the circumstances yet as to why he ran, but the best thing he could have done, was STOP!! People who run from the cops have no sense!! Their gonna get caught! eventually!! Just crazy all the way around!! Innocent lives could have been lost because of his stupidity. I'm sure he'll think twice before doing it again, if he makes it & makes it out of jail. Prayers to his family & to the 1st responders who had to deal with this nonsense! 🙏🙏
