Mobile Police Investigate an Officer Involved Shooting

Written by John Furman

On September 6, 2013, 4:30 a.m. Mobile Police responded to the 700 block of Bonneville Drive for a report of a prowler. Upon their arrival, officers discovered 37 year-old Ray Anson Mitchell in the yard of a residence. Mitchell engaged the officers in a physical confrontation and one of the officers tased him with the taser having no effect. During the continued physical altercation Mitchell was able to obtain a taser from the officer and tased one officer. When Mitchell attempted to tase a second officer, the officers then fired shots striking Mitchell and he was pronounced dead on the scene.
