From the article:

The shooting took place about 2:45 p.m. at 1230 University Court in the Lake Park Condominiums, off Lake Dam Road south of Avent Ferry Road. The officer and a person police described as a suspect were taken to WakeMed.

No other details were immediately available.

Philip Palmer, who lives in an apartment in an adjoining complex, said the door to his screened porch was open, allowing him to clearly hear the gunshots.

“It sounded rapid fire. It was multiple shots,” said Palmer, 26. “It was fast.”

Palmer said he soon heard a lot of “upset voices” that sounded like they were coming from outside the condos at Lake Park.


Update 2: from WRAL

Witnesses told WRAL News that they heard gunshots and then saw a police officer on the ground. Authorities have not released much information about the incident, but said an injured officer and a suspect were taken by ambulance to WakeMed.

Phillip Palmer, who lives in a nearby apartment, said he heard gunshots followed by screaming.

“I can’t say how many shots. It was rapid fire,” he said. “We came outside, we heard loud voices. Clearly something was going on. Eventually, we did hear a group of people trying to get someone to wake up.”
