GREENVILLE, N.C. (AP) – North Carolina police fatally shot a man they say was harassing customers in a grocery store parking lot and then showed a gun as an officer approached.
Greenville police said a bystander was wounded during the shooting Thursday afternoon but will survive.
Greenville police say the first officer to arrive at the scene approached a white man described in complaint calls. Police say the suspect was shot after producing a gun and died at the scene.
Police say the officer is a nine-year veteran who wasn’t injured, but that names of those involved would be released later. Department spokeswoman Kristen Hunter says the officer is also white.
A spokeswoman for the State Bureau of Investigation said agents are investigating.
