MOBILE, Ala. (AP) - Police say a 28-year-old man shot and killed a teenager who was robbing him at gunpoint outside of a Mobile apartment complex while he was unloading groceries from his car.

Public Affairs Officer Charlette Solis says 18-year-old Michael L. Clark stole the unidentified victim's wallet Monday evening, but victim was able to fire his handgun through his jacket pocket shooting Clark twice before Clark ran away.

Police found Clark's body nearby with the victim's wallet in his left hand and a revolver on the ground near his right hand. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Solis says the homicide is justifiable and the case will be presented to the grand jury.
