Gunman armed with a rifle and wearing a ballistic vest is arrested after shooting New Jersey cop in the leg
A gunman wearing a ballistic vest and armed with a rifle opened fire and shot a police officer in New Jersey Thursday morning, hitting the officer in the leg.
"He said 'I'm heavily armed and very dangerous. I'm going to Legends. You better call police,'" Honeycutt said.
The man was not armed when he entered the Inn, said Honeycutt, who tried to follow the suspect but couldn't catch him before he got into a car and sped away, driving through stop signs before the confrontation with police.
Officer Jonathan Westbrook said the gunman was waiting at an intersection near State Avenue and Village West Parkway for police to arrive in a red Maserati.
"We were able to locate him so quickly because he was stationary," Westbrook said. "Given the information that he was heavily armed and dangerous, our officers were very tactical in how we approached the subject."
The man raised an assault-style rifle at officers, who tried to convince him to put it down, Westbrook said. Eventually the man fired several shots at the officers and they fired back, he said.
Suspect In Custody After Off-Duty Officer Carjacked At Detroit Gas Station
Police have captured a suspect who allegedly carjacked an off-duty officer at a gas station in southwest Detroit. The off-duty Harper Woods Police officer was leaving a gas station on Fort and Clark streets around 2:40 a.m. Tuesday when he was approached by a man with a gun. The suspect then took off in the officer's Dodge Ram, which was loaded with police equipment including his gun, badge and body armor. A chase ensued that stretched into Melvindale, where the suspect ditched the Ram in a neighborhood and took off on foot, hopping over fences and cutting through yards. He was eventually caught and taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
The number of rounds fired by the unidentified gunman and officers was not immediately known. No officers or bystanders were injured.
Law enforcement authorities were investigating to determine if the man had committed any earlier crimes, Westbrook said.
The Maserati on scene traced to a Charles Roy Pearson out of Overland Park, Kansas.
A search of Pearson's records in Johnson County, Kansas, returned previous charges of criminal damage, and included a mugshot photo of Pearson.
Honeycutt confirmed Peason is the same man involved in the shooting incident with Kansas City, Kansas, police Tuesday.
The criminal damage complaint filed against Pearson references a Sylvia Pearson. Police in Overland Park, Kansas, asked for assistance to locate a woman by the name of Sylvia Ann Ussery-Pearson. OPPD said Ussery-Pearson left her home Monday morning and had not returned.
"Shot Spotter" call leads to officer-involved shooting
A Milwaukee police officer responding to a "Shot Spotter" report ended up shooting a man at the scene early Wednesday morning, according to assistant police chief Michael Brunson. The officer responded to the report near 21st and Concordia around 12:35 a.m. Police say they saw a man with something his hand, who then ran away. According to Brunson, as the officer ran after the man, that man turned toward the officer while holding a gun. Brunson says when the man did not obey an order to drop the gun, the officer shot him. According to Brunson, the man is 29-years-old. Brunson describes his wound as "non-life-threatening," but would not give other details.
A search of public records lists Charles Pearson and Sylvia Ussery-Pearson as living at the same Lenexa home at one point.
KMBC 9 News visited that home in Lenexa Tuesday afternoon and found it surrounded by police from both Lenexa and Overland Park. Officers later cleared that scene.
Ussery-Pearson has yet to be located.
Police in Kansas City, Kansas, continue to investigate after the officer-involved shooting.
According to a spokesperson with the Legends Outlets, the shopping area was placed on lock down until officers could clear the area. The shopping center is now open, however, police are asking individuals to stay away from the shooting scene during the investigation.
"As of 10:40 a.m., the KCKPD and KCKFD are clearing the scene, and Legends Outlets is operating as normal business," Legends Outlet said in a tweet. "Thank you to our security team, the KCKPD and KCKPD for keeping us safe."
