North Carolina News

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Two police officers serving in North Carolina’s largest city have been placed on administrative leave while the circumstances of a fatal shooting of an armed man outside a Walmart are investigated.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg police on Saturday identified the armed man who died Friday as 23-year-old Derrell Lamar Raney.

The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into what happened.

Police say a security guard contracted by Walmart at an east Charlotte store told officers a man pointed a firearm at him.

The police chief says the officers found the man in the parking lot and that the man also pointed a firearm at them.
