Police are searching for four men suspected of shooting one man in the leg and assaulting another who occupied an apartment in the 3000 block of Bristol Creek on Monday evening.
The victims’ injuries were not life-threatening, and they were taken to Duke Hospital for treatment, according to town spokeswoman Stephanie Smith.
The four suspects fled in a newer model red Dodge Charger with temporary tags, Smith said. Morrisville officers pursued and “engaged” the suspect’s vehicle near N.C. 540 and N.C. 54.
While at that location, a Morrisville officer suffered an “unrelated medical emergency.”
The suspects sped off and were still at large Tuesday.
Smith said Tuesday that the officer is in stable condition at Duke Hospital, but is “expected to make a full recovery” from the undisclosed condition.
