A 23-yr-previous man in Alabama was shot and killed after he used an app to trace his stolen cellphone and tried to confront his alleged thief, police stated.

The sufferer, who has not been recognized, was gunned down Sunday morning outdoors a Baptist church in Fairfield, which is a part of the Birmingham metro space.

Fairfield Police Chief Leon Davis stated investigators consider the sufferer’s telephone was stolen from his automotive and he used an app to trace it to a car on the parking zone.

There, he confronted his alleged thief and the suspect shot him twice within the chest, Davis informed NBC station WVTM.

"If in case you have an app on the telephone, contact your native police division. Let the police do their job and recuperate your stolen property," Davis stated. "Do not take these issues into your personal palms — this stuff usually do not end up too good."

Officers have been referred to as to the Crumbey Bethel Primitive Baptist Church at 7:20 a.m. and the sufferer was transferred to a hospital the place he was pronounced lifeless.

He could also be driving a 2015/sixteen Nissan Maxima that’s gold or "brownish" in colour, and has chrome trim round its sunroof, Davis added.
