Gas station surrounded and shut down by U.S. Marshals

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - U.S. Marshals surrounded and shut down a Birmingham gas station on Wednesday morning. It happened on the corner of Green Springs Highway and Green Springs Avenue.

According to U.S. Marshal Marty Keely, marshals shut down the intersection at one point as they made entry into the store. Keely says marshals were on hand keeping the peace as a civil judgement was executed and some of the store's merchandise was seized.

The gas station was closed for business for several hours.
