Police responded at 11:50 p.m. to Michael’s Pub for a report of a man armed with a small rifle. Within minutes, an officer spotted the man in a blue Ford Crown Victoria leaving. The officer attempted to stop the vehicle on AL-219, but Jamar Desean Pritchett allegedly refused to stop. Additional Selma officers and Dallas County deputies joined the pursuit. As the pursuit turned onto County Road 37, officers reportedly reduced their speed as Pritchett began to drive more recklessly. The vehicle left the road and went airborne before striking the trees and killing Pritchett.
