Deputy involved in shooting in Davidson County

The Davidson Co. Sheriff's Dept. says shots were fired after a suspect crashed into a deputy in a car.

DAVIDSON COUNTY, N.C. — The SBI is investigating a deputy-involved shooting in Davidson County. 

Just before 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, deputies say they were called to Kanoy Road for a disturbance call involving a female being "attacked." 

While on the scene, an SUV came through a garage door and hit a Davidson Co. deputy standing in the parking lot. 

Deputies say the driver in the SUV would not stop and that's when another deputy fired shots. 

Shortly after, the car stopped and the driver was transported to the hospital. 

The deputy who was hit was also taken to the hospital and is in stable condition. 

Another suspect from inside the business where deputies were initially called, was also taken into custody. 

The SBI will now conduct an investigation because shots were fired, which is standard protocol.

Davidson County Sheriff's Office will also continue its own investigations and is yet to name anyone in the incident.

Neighbors expressed concern about the incident and recent activity at that property which they said was questionable.

"It’s just mean and it’s coming over here too, just mean," said Cindy Craver. 

"I've seen rough people out there, and I have seen people acting up out there in the front and I just go on minding my own business and go on," she added.

A public record search on the address which is listed as a metal/warehouse business showed that in June of last year, police arrested a man there for drug possession and distribution.

That same man was arrested in May of 2017 for felony possession of a firearm and false police report.

We aren't naming the man with the 2 arrests because authorities haven't linked him to this recent incident on the property.

"When you see stuff like that going on you get a little worried and I have two young kids, four and two and you just worry about their safety," said Trina Jones.

"Just lots of questionable stuff has been going on there. Sometimes cars would be meeting in the parking lot but that was about it. It didn’t look like it was a business of any sort that they had anything going on," she added.
