Police initially received a call with reference to suspicious activity in a local neighborhood according to our attorney. At some point, a man who authorities claim is Quinton Blocker, opened fire at a law enforcement officer.
The officer was shot and hospitalized and is expected to recover from his personal injuries. Our Greensboro personal injury lawyer has received word that the officer is in critical condition.
Law enforcement sent out a text to all neighboring residents to be on the lookout for suspicious activity. They were advised to call 9-1-1 and not to go near it or the person who is considered armed and dangerous. Law enforcement proceeded to the scene and they apprehended Mr. Blocker. He was arrested and charged with attempted murder, felony assault on a law enforcement officer and possession of a firearm by felon.
