CENTER POINT - AL -

Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputies are investigating a robbery and shooting that left a centerpoint man dead.

It happened at about 9 O'clock Wednesday night as 33 year old Tavares Pledger returned home from the grocery store. His wife says she sent her son to help bring in the groceries. The boy told her that Pledger was being robbed by two men. She says that as she ran to the door there were three gun shots. Her husband ran into the house saying that he had been shot. She drove Pledger to St. Vincent's East where he died.

Deputies say there is little information on the suspects. One was wearing a blue shirt and had some kind of cloth covering his face.
