Clayton Lane Marsh, 31, of Brundidge, Ala. was shot after a chase behind Rex Auto USA. Faulk said the man died on his birthday.

Police said when the man fled, the officer chased him on foot. Poulos said the man displayed a weapon during the pursuit and the officer shot him.
The Southeast Sun newspaper in Enterprise, Ala. reported that a warrant had been issued for Marsh in Coffee County on March 13. The order said Marsh let the battery on his ankle monitor go dead.
