LMPD releases identities of officers involved in shooting near Lassiter Middle School
Police say the officers confronted a man with a weapon, who fired at them. The officers shot back at the man and killed him, according to LMPD.
Officer Rondall Carpenter was also involved in a shooting last October when a fleeing suspect fired shots at Carpenter and Officer Skylar Graudick. According to police, the officers had been pursuing a vehicle that pulled away from a traffic stop. When the vehicle stopped again, one occupant got out and began running while firing shots at the officers, who returned fire.
LMPD spokesperson Alicia Smiley says the Public Integrity Unit has finished its investigation into that shooting. She says the case is now before the Commonwealth's Attorneys Office for review.
