Suspect shot, killed after opening fire at CMPD headquarters


A man wanted for allegedly killing his girlfriend Thursday afternoon on Carlyle Drive in west Charlotte was killed during a shootout outside Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department headquarters late Thursday night, police told WSOC.

According to Charlotte-Mecklenburg police, 23-year-old Jonathan Bennett shot at officers multiple times while police were briefing in the parking lot.

Exclusive Channel 9 video showed a flood of police cars rushing to CMPD headquarters, where officers shot Bennett, ending the threat. One officer was shot in the leg and taken to Carolinas Medical Center. Bennett and White had an infant daughter together, and Bennett took the child with him after the shooting, police said. Charlotte Police said Bennett should be considered armed and unsafe. Details about why Bennett started shooting are unknown.

"Its obvious he knew we were looking for him".

The Charlotte Observer quoted Putney as saying it was doubtful that the shooting was captured on police body camera footage because it was an ambush.

The shooting outside police headquarters will be investigated by the department's internal affairs unit to determine whether the officers involved followed CMPD policy and procedures.

They were asked to keep a constant bedtime, resist caffeine and food before bed and try and relax in the evenings. These were found out when a group of people slept who slept 7 hours were given extra 21 minutes of their sleep.

Bennett was considered armed and unsafe as police searched for him after the killing of White. The child was later found safe.

"It's going to be shots fired", one officer said over the radio. Six to eight officers were outside, some of which were parole and probations officers.

The police continued to search for Bennett who was described as about 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 210 pounds and having black hair and brown eyes.

The cops, who were conducting a brief on an unrelated operation, fatally shot Bennett, who later died in the hospital, according to Putney.

The officer who was injured is expected to be okay.
