3 officers shot in High Point standoff
HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - Police in High Point say three officers have been shot during an overnight standoff.
A spokesman for High Point police told news outlets early Friday that all of the officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries, though one officer may need surgery.
Police say the standoff began late Thursday after officers heard gunfire near a home.
The officers spotted a man on the porch with a rifle. Police say he then barricaded himself inside the home.
The suspect is accused of shooting the officers as a tactical team worked to get him out of the house. The man was still barricaded as of 6 a.m. Friday.
