Birmingham, AL (WBRC) - Birmingham police officers say a Friday night homicide was an act of self-defense.

Investigators say 45-year-old Percy Coleman was found shot to death at a home in the 1400 block of 30th Street Ensley around 10:15 p.m.

Officers say Coleman was involved in a domestic altercation with his wife just before the shooting. Homicide investigators presented the case to the Jefferson County District Attorney's Office. The DA's office advised investigators the case will be ruled as self-defense because the victim was defending herself when she shot Coleman.

No arrests were made in the case.
