Police officer arrested

Montgomery police officer A.C. Smith has been arrested and charged with murder in the shooting death of Gregory Gunn.

The city's D-A said during a news conference Wednesday that "probable cause" was found in an investigation by the S-B-I to arrest Smith.

The investigation started after Smith shot and killed 59-year old Gunn last Thursday.

The shooting touched off outrage and protest across the city of Montgomery.

The D-A spoke with Fox 54 early Thursday to talk about what's next in the case.

Smith's attorney said in a statement that his client "would not be sacrificed on the altar of political correctness."
