Law enforcement officers in North Carolina shot and killed a suspect accused of shooting and wounding a detective last week. The multi-agency search for Brandon Devone Smith, 30, ended Sunday with a car chase and a foot pursuit. Officers shot and killed the man in a wooded area.
Authorities had accused Smith of shooting and wounding Det. Michael Spencer of the New Hanover County (N.C.) Sheriff's Office, who is also a member of the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, reports the Star News Online.
Det. Spencer is expected to make a full recovery. No officers were injured in the manhunt.
