SBI, CMPD Investigating An Officer-Involved Shooting

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Officers say they called around 1 p.m. to a home on Billings Park Drive for an involuntary commitment due to a person in mental health crisis.

Police say that while officers were drafting paperwork for the involuntary commitment, multiple 911 calls for the same home were made for a domestic violence incident and an Assault With a Deadly Weapon.

Officers say that when they approached the home, they saw a suspect shooting multiple shots towards the back of the home. An officer then shot the suspect and stopped the active threat.

Officers say that the suspect and one other person were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. No officers were hurt, and police found a firearm at the scene.

The State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) and CMPD Internal Affairs are both investigating the officer-involved shooting.

The CMPD Homicide Unit is also investigating any potential crimes that may have led up to the officer-involved shooting.

Anyone with information is asked to call CMPD at 704-432-TIPS or contact Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or charlottecrimestoppers.com.
