Special Agents with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) are investigating an officer-involved shooting at the request of the Blount County Sheriff’s Office involving a Blount County Sheriff Deputy.
On Jan. 11, deputies from the Etowah County Sheriff’s Office, Blount County Sheriff’s Office, and an Agent with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) were attempting to arrest and executed a warrant for Stevie B. Holmes, 40, of Cleveland concerning Making a Terrorist Threat.

The injured deputy was treated at the scene and Holmes was air lifted to a local area hospital for medical treatment and is currently in stable condition.
Nothing further is available as the investigation is ongoing. Once complete, the findings will be turned over to the Blount County District Attorney’s Office.
