MPD does not identify the names of companies where crimes occur as a matter of policy. WSFA 12 News, on the other hand, independently validated the location after locating multiple police and medics who had responded to the business about 1:30 p.m.

Police and fire medics were called to the location “in regard to a disturbance with a person shot,” according to Capt. Saba Coleman. She stated that police officers discovered the victim and pronounced him dead on the spot due to a gunshot wound.

Following the shooting, an off-duty officer from another agency immediately apprehended the perpetrator, later identified as Tre’Darrius Portis, 28, of Montgomery. Coleman stated that Portis was still in possession of a firearm when he was apprehended.
