UPDATE (Monday):

Police identified the man killed in Sunday's deadly shooting in front of the Nine Brothers grocery store as 19-year-old D'Kobe Jordan, and say a concealed carry permit holder "intervened in an attempt to protect the life" of a man Jordan was threatening.

Chattanooga Police say they found Jordan's body in the parking lot. Witnesses told officers Jordan was armed with a handgun and using it to threaten another man in the parking lot.

A police release continues, "It was also determined through investigation that a gun carry permit holder saw the threatening behavior and intervened in an attempt to protect the life of the male being threatened." It's still not exactly clear who pulled the trigger, how many shots were fired, or if there will be any charges filed in the case. NewsChannel 9 continues to dig deeper into this story for more details.

Members of the Violent Crimes Bureau are actively investigating this incident.
