CHICKASAW, Ala. (WALA)- A wild story coming out of Chickasaw Thursday night.

Investigators say four people were detained after a fight and several shots were fired at the Neighborhood Store on Thompson Boulevard.

One man still on the loose, after police say he fled the scene after firing several shots in the store’s parking lot.

According to investigators, a call came in about a robbery at 5:22 p.m. on 11th Avenue.

Captain Tommie McDuffie with CPD says the victim was robbed by two other teenagers.

McDuffie says the victim went home to tell his mother what happened and she wanted to confront them, so the two went out looking for them.

Investigators say the two accused robbers were sitting in the parking lot at the Neighborhood Store when the mother and her son confronted them, that’s when a fight ensued between the teenagers.

Captain McDuffie says the mother went to her car to grab her handgun and fired several shots in the air to break up the fight but did not hit anyone.

It doesn’t end there.

According to investigators, the mother’s boyfriend shows up and gets involved in a fight with the teenagers.

“The boyfriend of the mother then pulls up, punches were thrown by him at two of the teenagers that were a part of the robbery,” McDuffie explained. “They get to fighting. Dad pulls out from what I understand was an assault rifle and fires off some rounds as well but again he left the scene prior to us controlling and securing the area.”

McDuffie says they are looking for the boyfriend. Police have his name and car.

They went by his house but he was not there.

The mother, her son, and the two teens accused of robbing him were all detained on scene.
