HIGH POINT, N.C. — One suspect has been arrested after a person shot at a police officer’s face in High Point.

Nakore Kewan Rogers, 19, of Durham, is charged with two counts of breaking and entering a motor vehicle and two counts of larceny.

At about 5:35 a.m. Tuesday, police responded to a larceny from motor vehicle on the 1400 block of Pondhaven Drive.

At the scene, officers drove up to an Audi sedan. Police say the Audi had been stolen.

The officer knocked on the driver’s side window and asked the person inside to roll the window down. The driver refused.

Officers say the person in the car then opened the door and fired a handgun toward the officer’s face, narrowly missing.

The officer hid behind his patrol car and shot back.

Another car pulled up to the scene, and the person who was in the Audi got out and got into this other vehicle.

During a ground search for suspects, Rogers was located in some brush around Johnson Street just north of Skeet Club Road.

Rogers had numerous outstanding warrants out of Durham, Mebane, and Graham for breaking and entering a motor vehicle and larceny.

Rogers was taken to the Guilford County Jail in High Point and given a $244,000 secured bond.

Two suspects are still at large.

Through further investigation, police determined that several cars in the area had been broken into during the night.

Bullet holes were found in two nearby homes. One witness says her uncle had finished praying when a bullet hit the window and ricocheted on two objects in the room. The family all went into one room and got down on the ground. No injuries were reported.

Throughout the morning on Tuesday, officers used K-9s and drones to track the suspects.

Anyone with information is asked to contact the High Point Police Department at (336) 883-3224 or Crime Stoppers of High Point at (336) 889-4000.
