3 Arrested After CMPD Officers Are Fired Upon Along North Tryon St.

From http://www.wsoctv.com, September 29, 2013

Three suspects are in custody as detectives with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department are investigating an officer-involved shooting at the 1800 block of North Tryon Street.

Officers from the Metro Division responded about 4 a.m. after someone called police, saying there was a person inside a parked vehicle loading guns.

According to CMPD, once Officer Anthony Holzhauer and Officer David Sussman arrived, the people inside the vehicle fired shots at them.

The two officers returned fire, but the suspects fled the scene in their vehicle. Police said another CMPD unit saw the vehicle driving on North Tryon Street. That unit tried to conduct a traffic stop, but the vehicle kept driving.

CMPD said a vehicle chase led them into Cabarrus County, where the vehicle was successfully stopped with help from the Cabarrus County Sheriff’s Office.

The three people in the vehicle were taken to police headquarters, where they are being interviewed by detectives.

The initial investigation shows that nobody was injured in the shooting or the vehicle chase.

The CMPD Crime Scene Search unit is processing the scene and collecting physical evidence.

The Internal Affairs Bureau is conducting a separate investigation to determine whether CMPD procedures were followed during the incident.

Officers Holzhauer and Sussman have been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the shooting investigation.
