Greensboro officer-involved shooting connected to shooting of 16-year-old Monday night

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Police are investigating after an officer-involved shooting near a busy Greensboro intersection Tuesday, according to Greensboro police.

The shooting happened around 3:45 p.m. in the area of Battleground Avenue and Edney Ridge Road, which is near the intersection of Battleground Avenue and Pisgah Church Road.

Greensboro police said the shooting happened following a traffic stop in the parking lot of the Battleground Village shopping center. The traffic stop was related to the shooting on Baker Avenue Monday where a 16-year-old girl was shot.

Police Chief Wayne Scott said three people were in the vehicle. One person stayed with the vehicle and two others ran across Battleground Avenue.

An officer caught one of the suspects by Total Wine & More. A struggle ensued and the suspect pulled out a gun, Scott said. At that point the officer shot the suspect.

The suspect was taken to a hospital and is expected to be OK. The officer was not injured.

The two other suspects were taken into custody and are being questioned.

On Tuesday evening, the 16-year-old girl's father told FOX8 the girl is on life-support and has been declared brain dead.

FOX8 has chosen not to identify the girl or her father at this time.
