Police say a 10-year-old girl was home with a sibling when Brewer knocked on her door then pulled out a shotgun and shot through a window.

The 10-year-old suffered superficial injuries and is expected to be OK.

Police responded to the neighborhood in reference to a domestic violence call in the 400 block of Kingville Road.

They were unable to find the woman who placed the call, but saw a man leaving a house. The man, later identified as Brewer, fired a shotgun at the officers.

The two injured officers have been identified as Kevin Stafford and Eric Bojaj. According to WSOC, Officer Stafford has been a member since Aug. 29, 2011 and Officer Bojaj has been with the department since Jan. 25, 2010.

According to police, the suspect then barricaded himself in a home, but eventually surrendered to police and came out of the house unarmed.

The officers have minor injuries and were transported to Carolinas Medical Center.

One was shot in the leg and arm, the other in the face and elbow.

On Monday, police charged Brewer with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault with a firearm on a law enforcement officer, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury, two counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill, six counts of discharging a firearm into occupied dwelling, two counts of damage to property, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, assault by pointing a gun and discharging a firearm within the city limits.
