The Alabama Bureau of Investigation this evening is investigating a fatal shooting involving a Birmingham police officer.

Birmingham police Lt. Henry Irby said officers from the West Precinct responded to a domestic call at 3:32 p.m. in the 1900 block of Avenue J, just off 20th Street in Ensley.

Upon arriving, they found a 58-year-old man stabbing a 27-year-old man with a barbecue fork. After an officer told the man to drop the fork, Irby said the man continued to stab the victim until the officer fired one shot. The older man was pronounced dead on the scene. The 27-year-old was taken to UAB Hospital.

Police would not release the name of either man or the officer, who has been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending an investigation
