ALBERTVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - An investigation is underway after an officer-involved shooting resulted in one death while responding to a domestic violence call in Albertville.

Albertville Police responded to call just after 3 p.m. Police presence was heavy and the State Bureau of Investigations had already begun working the scene. Neighbors were outside observing the scene but nobody was familiar with the details that may have led to this shooting.

According to Albertville Chief of Police J.T. Cartee, the man who died is identified as Larry Gene Chadwick.

WAFF spoke with Chief Cartee who gave an emotional statement, saying you never really know what to expect when calls like these come in.

“It’s a very stressful time for us. This is something we don’t like doing,” he said. “I saw the look on our officers’ faces today when I came out here and it’s stressful. It’s stressful, it’s hard. We don’t like to take people’s lives. We want to help people.”

The investigation will be led by the SBI in cooperation with the Albertville Police Department and Marshall County Sheriff’s Office.
