The Charlotte-Mecklenburg police has revealed that, Terry Clark Hughes Jr., a 39-year-old suspect, was responsible for the shooting incident in Charlotte, North Carolina, where four law enforcement officers lost their lives on April 29.

However, it was revealed by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Chief Johnny Jennings in a news conference that Terry Clark Hughes Jr was not the only shooter involved.

When the officers approached Hughes, they were met with gunfire, and in response, they returned fire, ultimately striking Hughes. He was later found deceased in a yard.

Chief Jennings also mentioned that the officers faced additional gunfire from inside the residence, but it remains unclear which officers were hit by whose bullets.

The other shooter has not been identified by the police, but two other individuals are currently in custody.

Chief Jennings confirmed that two people were involved in the shooting, with Hughes being the first to open fire.

Three of the deceased officers have been named; they are North Carolina Department of Adult Correction veterans, Sam Poloche and Alden Elliott and CMPD Officer Joshua Eyer.
