North Carolina officer fatally shot outside restaurant

BY , Dec 17, 2020 6:27 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

A North Carolina police officer and an armed suspect have been killed outside a fast food restaurant after a shootout that also left another officer wounded.

The shooting happened late Wednesday night in Concord, which is just northeast of Charlotte.

Authorities identified the slain officer as Officer Jason Shuping, who joined the force last year.

Police Chief Gary J. Gacek says two officers encountered a carjacking suspect at a Sonic Drive-in and were shot.

He says another two officers then arrived and fatally shot the suspect.

The fatal shooting marks the second time since last week that a police officer was killed near the Charlotte area.
