A man described as a "Sovereign Citizen" by police in Alabama has been shot and killed by police after trying to turn in a stray dog at the local dog pound.

WTVY reported than an altercation occured outside the Dothan, Alabama shelter at 1pm on Dec. 30th. The initial officer called for backup, and the suspect was shot.


"On December 30, 2014 the Dothan Police Department responded to a disorderly conduct complaint which ended in an officer involved shooting. Following standard procedures, the investigation into the incident will be handled by the ALEA State Bureau of Investigation. However, Dothan Police are able to comment on the events which precipitated the shooting.

At approximately 12:30 pm officers made contact with Robert Lawrence at the Dothan City Animal Shelter after he attempted to turn a stray animal over to an employee. Lawrence, a sovereign citizen, became disorderly after being told he could not leave the animal without producing identification. After repeatedly being told to calm down, Lawrence was advised he was being placed under arrest. A physical altercation ensued, to which Lawrence was shot in the abdomen.

Lawrence was transported to the Southeast Alabama Medical Center where he has been treated for the gunshot wound and listed in critical condition. The ALEA State Bureau of Investigation quickly responded to the scene and will handle the investigation by request of the Dothan Police Department.

The Dothan Police Department would like to thank everyone who assisted with this incident including the ALEA State Bureau of Investigation, the Houston County Sheriffs Office and the Dothan Fire Department.

The subject in Tuesday's officer involved shooting has died. We are waiting on confirmed details from the Dothan Police Department, and will bring you those as they come in.
