Durham police release report of officer-involved shooting

Police chief Jose Lopez, in a report to the city manager that was made public Tuesday, said a 21-year-old man this month fired a round of gunshots at two women and a child before firing a single gunshot at officers who responded to the shootings. One of the department’s K9 officers, B.K. Johnson, reported that he fired a single shot “toward the second floor,” where a man “raised his gun at him and did not drop it,” according to a preliminary report of an officer-involved shooting that was made public on Tuesday after Lopez submitted the document to Durham City Manager Thomas Bonfield.
