ARCHDALE, N.C. -- Four police officers are now on administrative leave after shooting and killing an armed man in his Archdale backyard.

Archdale police said they received a 911 call around 7:30 p.m. for a domestic disturbance at 104 Mae Matilda Court. Archdale police asked High Point police to assist.

When the officers arrived, they said a resident of the home, Bobby Troledge Norris, 53, pointed a gun at officers. The officers fired, killing Norris.

Some residents of the Rush Hollow Estates subdivision said this is the first time they have even seen a police officer in the neighborhood.

"It's an extremely friendly place," said resident Eric Carlson. "We know all our neighbors."

"Definitely not what I expected on a nice, quiet Sunday before school starts," his wife Elisabeth added.

The North Carolina State Bureau of investigation is looking into the incident. One of the officers on leave is from the Archdale Police Department. The other three are from the High Point Police Department. High Point Police Captain Michael Kirk said it is standard practice for officers to be on administrative leave after a shooting.
