One police officer has died and another was injured in an ongoing confrontation in North Carolina this Wednesday.
The incidents recorded in Watagua County continue with the alleged rifleman, reports the Sheriff’s Office, which has complained that Chris Ward died after being flown to a Tennessee medical center for treatment for his injuries.
The agents had responded to a call for a welfare check on Wednesday morning because the person did not show up for work or did not answer the phone, the authorities said in a statement.
When they reached the house, they found all of the residents’ vehicles and decided to enter the building when they were shot by “an unknown person”.
The alleged perpetrator is barricaded in the house and occasionally shoots the agents stationed in the area for whom the residents of the area have been evacuated.
