Killed – Lemuel Rufus Furr (Charlotte, NC)

Lemuel Rufus Furr

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -
Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is conducting an investigation, after an officer involved shooting in the 2500 block of Penninger Circle. The call for service came in at 1:15 a.m., on Saturday, July 06.

Officers responded to a call about an assault with a deadly weapon.

When officers got to the scene, they spoke with the person who called. He said he and his father, got into an argument inside a home and the suspect shot at him and had barricaded himself inside the residence.

Police tried to negotiate with the father, 59-year-old Lemuel Rufus Furr III. Furr told negotiators he was not going to be taken alive, police said.

Eventually, Furr exited the home, pointing two handguns at the officers, the report states.

A CMPD Officer assigned to the Vice and Gang Unit then fired, hitting and killing Furr. Per department protocol, the officer, who has been with CMPD since September 2000, was placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Killed – Che Cadfi Matoorah (Charlotte, NC)

male

A Charlotte man seriously wounded in a July 4 shooting died Wednesday, and the man arrested in the case now faces a murder charge, police say.

The case is unusual, because the victim and suspect didn’t know each other, detectives believe.

Jeremy Rossco Bishop, 23, now faces a murder charge in the death of Che Cadfi Matoorah, 29, according to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police. Matoorah was shot in the early-morning hours on the Fourth of July and died Wednesday morning at Carolinas Medical Center.

Police say they were called about 1:10 a.m. July 4 to the 2200 block of The Plaza, where they found Matoorah suffering from a gunshot wound. A day later, Bishop was arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.

“Detectives believe that the victim and suspect got into an argument that led to the shooting,” Officer Keith Trietley, a CMPD spokesman, said in a statement. Trietley said investigators don’t think the two men knew one another. Police say that in most of CMPD’s homicide cases, the two parties know each other.
