DALLAS, NC — WCCB Charlotte has learned the identity of a man a Dallas Police Officer shot and killed Tuesday.
Sources say the suspect was Ronnie Carr from Charlotte.
The State Bureau of Investigation has still not confirmed that name.

WCCB Charlotte checked, and Carr was on parole, tracked in the system, due to his criminal past of cashing fraudulent checks.
Sources believe Carr’s day started with Odell Lloyd, Jr. The pair asked a homeless man, Eric White, if he wanted to make quick money. They gave him some fake checks to cash at Ingles.
That is the type of crime Carr has been convicted of at least two times in the past five years.
Police arrested White and Lloyd inside the Ingles store Tuesday for check fraud.
That would put Carr in the parking lot. Police spotted a grey car outside that led them up 321 North and would not pull over.
An officer says the driver tried to run over him, and he fired his gun.
WCCB Charlotte has requested the dash camera video.
The District Attorney’s Office has it now, and the SBI says agents had not seen it by Wednesday night.
Drivers passing saw it unfold.
“It was scary!” said Dan Shortridge. “He was pointed down into the window, and I couldn’t see anybody in there, but he was pointing down. The car was all beat up down in a gully.”
Three Dallas Police Officers are on administrative leave until investigators determine if the shooting was justified.
