Fox News

A North Carolina State Highway Patrol trooper was shot in the face while conducting a routine traffic stop Monday night, prompting an hours-long interagency manhunt that led to the arrest of the alleged gunman and two other suspects, WRAL reported.  

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office identified the first suspect as 36-year-old John David Jones, whom they called “armed and dangerous” during the manhunt. Authorities located Jones in a wooded area shortly after midnight and arrested him, CBS 17 reported.

Two other suspects — William Allen Boswell, 40, and Bryan Jeffrey Mullins — were arrested and charged with possession of a stolen motor vehicle, the report said.

Authorities identified the injured state trooper as Daniel Harrell, a 5-year veteran of the force, The News & Observer reported. Authorities told WRAL Harrell’s injuries are “serious” but “not considered to be life-threatening.”

Jones has been charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, inflicting serious injury, and assault on a law enforcement officer, the report said.

  1. The attitudes and behaviors of the police have created this hell for their own
    Problem is
    They are too stupid and thuggish to wake up to it
    I’ve warned about this for years in comments
    It’s the reactions they are getting from their own behaviors coming back to roost
    People are getting fed up with the tyrant class
    Granted your average joe is not going to make this kind of move , yet
    But as far as the already criminal element they feel they got nothin to lose by fighting their way out
