    Birmingham homicide ruled justifiable

    The May 5 shooting death of an 18-year-old man at Beaconview Apartments has been ruled a justifiable homicide, Birmingham police announced Monday.

    Marqualius Harris, of Birmingham, was shot and killed as he attempted to rob two males who were about to get into a car, Sgt. Johnny Williams wrote in a press release.

    The two robbery victims were shot, but survived. They shot back and killed Harris.

    Homicide detectives presented findings of their investigation to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office. The D.A.’s office ruled the death a justifiable homicide.

    It's a good thing that they were able to finish the job.

    They finished what the dirtbag started...

    A detailed chronology on this could be very informative.

    Wonder why they're not saying whether these were CCW holders or not. The story is very brief.
    If it was a CCWer killing someone, you know this would be blown up to mega proportions.

    Well, sucks to be shot, no doubt, but it was the defenders who survived, and that's a good thing! Good job!

    It took THIS LONG to determine if returning fire after being shot was justifiable?!?

    Well.....nevermind. A month is pretty good time for a goverment entity I guess.

    I'm willing to kill to keep it. Are you willing to die to take it?
