Raleigh, NC Police Officer Shot 1 other injured

Police are investigating an incident that injured two people, including a Raleigh police officer. 

Officials say it happened just before noon in the 200 block of Donald Ross Drive, near Wake Med. Police were called to the area to respond to a report of a person with a gun. 

A Raleigh police officer was reportedly wounded by a gunshot at a house on Donald Ross Drive late Monday morning, and police took a man into custody.

The officer was taken to WakeMed Hospital for treatment of what was reported to be a leg wound. Police say a second person was also taken to WakeMed, but it’s not clear if it was the man who was arrested.

Police sealed off an area around Donald Ross Drive and Kidd and Haven roads, near the entrance to Raleigh Country Club.

Police had been dispatched to the area to investigate a report of a man with a gun shortly before noon in the 200 block of Donald Ross Drive.

“There’s a man with a gun outside and he’s trespassing because he’s not supposed to be here,” someone told a 911 dispatcher. “I see the gun in his pants. … Just get the cops to come.”

The original call can be heard here:

Authorities said shots were fired, but they didn’t say whether anyone was wounded by the gunfire.

The follow-up call that an officer had been shot brought a large number of police, whose cars lined Donald Ross Drive early Monday afternoon.

The officer and the other person weren’t immediately identified.
