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.

Killed – Male Teen – Jeffrey Henry (Wilmington, NC)

male

Ruby Jacobs heard a volley of gunshots early Thursday morning, but didn’t want to look outside her Sixth Street window. Having buried her own son who was gunned down on 31st Street more than a decade ago, the Wilmington native knew all too well what heartache could lie at the end of those cracks.

Jacobs was right – about 1:30 a.m. Jeffrey Henry, 17, was shot dead in her neighbor’s yard, the fourth victim this year of the violent gun play that haunts the Port City’s nights.

According to North Charleston police spokesman Spencer Pryor, police responded to a home in the 4600 block of Thoroughbred Drive around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday after receiving reports of a domestic disturbance between Williams and Lawson, who both live at the home.

Once at the scene, Pryor said officers were able to clear several people from inside of the residence.

Killed – Misty Michelle Mullins (Raleigh, NC)

Misty Michelle Mullins

RALEIGH, N.C. — A Wake County deputy fatally shot a woman Friday afternoon after she charged at him and two other deputies with a knife, Sheriff Donnie Harrison said.

Someone called 911 at 11:45 a.m. to report that a woman was breaking into a home at 6232 Melbourne Road and was threatening the caller with a garden rake, Harrison said. When deputies arrived 10 minutes later, they found a woman breaking into a second home at 6222 Melbourne Road.

Misty Michelle Mullins and her boyfriend rented that home until a couple weeks ago, the property owner said. The pair had broken up, and Mullins was no longer listed on the lease.

The man had a protective order against Mullins, 33, saying she had assaulted him on April 25 and had threatened him with a knife and a baseball bat, according to court records. The order bars her from the 6222 Melbourne Road home and the man’s workplace.

Deputies tried to persuade Mullins to come out of the home. When she wouldn’t, they entered.

Mullins then charged at the deputies with a machete, witnesses said, and they used a stun gun to try to subdue her. When that failed three times, Deputy Gabriel Romero shot and killed her.

Homicide Investigation

On Sunday, May 12, 2013 at approximately 1:45 am, an officer with the Fayetteville Police Department heard the sound of gunfire while traveling along Bragg Boulevard near the Mike Street intersection. The investigation revealed that an altercation had taken place in the parking lot of 4947 Bragg Boulevard and culminated with multiple gunshots being fired. While officers were conducting the preliminary investigation, a call was received that a gunshot victim was located at the Walmart (1550 Skibo Road). Officers determined that a friend drove the victim away from the scene and stopped at the Walmart for assistance. During contact with the driver, officers discovered that the passenger in the vehicle had been fatally wounded.

The name of the deceased victim is currently being withheld pending the next-of-kin notification. At this time, the investigation suggests that the shooting does not appear to be a random act of violence. Additional information will be released as it becomes available.
