Police also said another person was hit and killed just half a mile away at Montgomery and Jefferson Streets NE.
At the time, APD said they were investigating the murder and fatal pedestrian accident as related events.
Now APD made it clear to KOB 4 on Sunday afternoon that only one person had died between the two incidents. Around 2 a.m. Sunday morning, a 911 caller said he had shot a suspect who was reportedly trying to steal tools at 4055 Montgomery NE.
Police said the man was later found in central Montgomery. Rescue workers arrived at the scene and took the man to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
A spokesman says this could be considered a justified murder.
