The person who called 911 identified himself as "Frank." The man killed in the incident was named Frank Charles Johnston. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
After the shooting, Anniston investigators called the number the 911 phone call came from, but didn't get an answer. They interviewed Johnson's wife and found a cell phone inside the home that matched the number from the 911 call.
The phone is being processed in Hoover by the Alabama Electronic Crimes Task Force.
The two officers who fire shots at Johnston are on administrative leave with pay through the weekend, pending the investigation. Anniston Police Chief Shane Denham says he will re-evaluate their status on Monday.
Anniston Police also released the 911 transcript of the phone call between "Frank" and Calhoun County 911. The transcript is below:
911 Operator- 911, where is your emergency?
