Winston-Salem Police Sergeant Dies Of Injuries

Authorities said a North Carolina police officer wounded in a shootout last week has died after suffering a setback over the weekend.

Winston-Salem Police Chief Scott Cunningham said at a news conference that Sgt. Mickey Hutchens died Monday evening at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. The 50-year-old officer was shot in the face during the shootout Oct. 7 that left a suspect dead and another police officer wounded.

Officials said earlier that Officer Daniel Clark was released from the hospital Friday. The 28-year-old officer was hit with two bullets.

The officers had chased Monte Denard Evans from a restaurant where the 35-year-old had come to confront his former wife. Evans was killed in the shootout.
