BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The Talladega County Sheriff's Office has confirmed that a store owner was killed on Friday morning after being shot in a robbery attempt.

According to the Sheriff's Office, the robbery took place at the corner of County Road 32 and Ironaton Road.

Talladega Police are investigating the case and have released few details on the shooting as they continue to interview witnesses.
