RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Authorities say a man whom police in North Carolina shot to death earlier this week had just gone to his girlfriend’s house, showed her a gun and told her she couldn’t leave him.
A preliminary report on Monday’s shooting by the Raleigh Police Department says the officers fired at 24-year-old Jaqwan Terry after he pointed his gun at an officer who tackled him after a short chase.
The report says Officer B.F. Burleson was wounded in the leg as he and Terry shot at each other. Burleson has been released from the hospital. The report was released Friday.
Officer B.S. Beausoleil arrived as the shooting started and also fired at Terry. He was not hurt.
The State Bureau of Investigation is still looking into the shooting.
