Mobile Fatal Shooting

One officer was wounded in the incident Monday morning.

Christopher Foehl of Eight Mile was killed.

His mother, Bonnie Foehl, said her son had about seven weeks to
go before completing his probation for a burglary and had reported
Monday for his weekly visit with his probation officer.

She told the Press-Register she didn't know why Foehl was being
arrested, but he had failed a drug test.

Authorities have not commented on who fired the fatal shot, but Foehl said she was told that her son grabbed an officer's gun.

Officer Dan Thompson was shot and wounded.

Officer Paul Morton injured his hand in the struggle.
