Three men posing as agents of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives kicked their way into a home in Whistler, killed a 31-year-old man and held four others at gunpoint early Wednesday, Prichard police said.

The three men searched the home for money before leaving with a flat screen television, police said.

The victim was identified as Taurus Terrell Russell, according to Prichard spokeswoman Latoya Veal. She said Russell was shot once in the middle torso and was pronounced dead at the scene when rescue workers arrived about 3 a.m.
