A Pike County man was shot and killed during his arrest near Brundidge, Alabama this morning.
Sheriff Russell Thomas says Rickey Shackelford, 48, was wanted on a parole violation and a warrant out of Coffee County.
The sheriff says Shackelford was armed with a machete and a hunting knife and told deputies and probation and parole personnel he was not going back to prison.
Thomas says a deputy opened fire when Shackelford raised the machete.
The Alabama Bureau of Investigation is reviewing the incident and the results will be presented to a Pike County grand jury.
