A man accused of shooting a police
officer in the chest has been convicted of firearm and drug
An Elizabeth City jury found Bobby Rawlings guilty last week of
being a felon in possession of a firearm, two counts of possessing
cocaine and two counts of carrying a firearm to support drug
Rawlings was not convicted of attempted murder despite
allegations he shot a police supervisor who entered a house to
arrest alleged drug dealers.
Police Captain Brady Thompson survived the shooting last March
thanks to his bulletproof vest. Prosecutors say Rawlings, who had
previous convictions on gun and drug charges, stopped shooting only
because his gun jammed.
