Attorney: N.C. Cop Shot Self Rather Than Client

December 19, 2012  | 

A gunshot wound that injured a Durham police officer was self-inflicted, an attorney for the man charged in the shooting said Wednesday during a first court appearance for his client.

Durham police say Officer Kelly A. Stewart was shot in the leg during a struggle at a traffic stop on Forest Road Tuesday morning.

Carlos Antonio Riley Jr., 21, was taken into custody Tuesday afternoon after a nearly three-hour manhunt and was later charged with assault on a law enforcement officer causing serious injury, robbery with a dangerous weapon and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

But his attorney said Wednesday that Stewart, who was not in uniform, pulled up with his lights and siren on, got out of the car and was screaming expletives at Riley.
