Our Greensboro attorney hears all sorts of stories in and around the courthouse. Our criminal lawyer received word that a 16-year-old was arrested after he pulled a handgun in a struggle with a police officer.
Law enforcement responded to the scene as a result of a call of gunfire in the street. Officers were given a description of the suspects who all ran away after the shooting. Our lawyer found out that the teenager told the officers the people they were looking for were in the opposite direction, and then proceeded to run the other way.
The officers got the teenager to the ground after a brief foot chase. Our attorney found out that the teen attempted to pull a silver handgun from his pocket during the struggle. The officer was able to gain control of his hand and prevent the weapon from being used against him.
