Suspect opens fire on officer through sunroof of car
ALBEMARLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina police chief says that a suspect stood up through a car’s sunroof and fired a rifle at one of his officers in a police cruiser.
The Albemarle Police Department issued a statement saying that the officer was trying to stop a vehicle on Sunday that matched the description from an earlier shooting. The statement said that while the officer tried to make a traffic stop, a passenger stood up through the sunroof and opened fire, striking the cruiser three times. The officer was not hit.
Authorities were looking for the driver and passenger of the car Sunday afternoon.
