Suspects Fire On Charlotte Police Officers

Two Charlotte police officers say they fired on suspects after the suspects shot at them.

Investigators said the officers were called around 4 a.m. Sunday after someone called 911 reporting the men were loading guns inside a car.

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police say the officers were shot at as they got out of their patrol car to investigate. Authorities say the officers fired back and the men drove away. No one was injured.

Investigators say the suspects led police on a chase into Cabarrus County before their car was stopped and they were taken into custody.

The officers have been put on administrative leave during a routine internal investigation into the shooting. The names of the suspects or any charges they may face also have not been released.
