MOBILE COUNTY, Ala. -

An Eight Mile, Alabama man is dead after he was shot by an Alabama State Trooper.

Around 8 PM Saturday a trooper was involved in a short, high-speed chase after 21-year-old Garret Joshua Chruma fled on a motorcycle.

A foot pursuit then followed and the trooper confronted Chruma, who was armed. The trooper fired his weapon, killing him.

The Alabama Bureau of Investigation (ABI), the investigative division of the Alabama Department of Public Safety, will conduct an investigation into the officer-involved shooting. 

The ABI's findings will be turned over to the Mobile County District Attorney for review.
