The attempted armed robbery happened at Waterford Square Apartments located behind Charlotte Catholic High School. The apartment complex is a well known trouble spot in CMPD's South District.
From WSOC TV:
The SBI is investigating a shooting that involved an off-duty Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer early Friday morning in south Charlotte.
The shooting happened around midnight at an apartment complex on Waterford Tide Loop off Johnston Road.
Police said a group of people walked up to off-duty CMPD officer Emily Bishop and her husband and tried to rob the couple.
Officials said Bishop fired her service weapon and the suspects returned fire. A 17-year-old suspect was hit and eventually caught while several others ran from the scene.
He had injuries that were not life-threatening and was taken to a hospital, CMPD said. There were no reports of any other officers being injured.
The same suspects burglarized and robbed another resident at the apartment complex minutes before the shooting.
The 17-year-old suspect will be charged with assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill on a law enforcement officer, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon, assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill and robbery with a dangerous weapon.
Additional charges may be forthcoming as the investigation develops. Police are still searching for the other suspects.
Bishop was hired by the CMPD on June 18, 2018, and is assigned as a patrol officer in the Freedom Division. She has been placed on administrative leave, which is standard procedure anytime an officer discharges his or her weapon.
Residents said they were not allowed to leave the complex during the initial part of the investigation. They have been able to come and go since then, residents said.
There is dumb and then there's coco bananas stupid. Like the teenaged thug and his friends who tried to rob an off duty CMPD officer and her husband.
But what really should piss you off is WCCB's twitter feed:
The local station has a history continually playing the race/pity card. Giving air time to idiots like DaBaby, calling suspects victims or outing a CMPD Officer within minutes of an attack on her life, WCCB continues to amaze with their level of pandering and desperation to attract viewers.
