CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- (WSOC) -- A Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officer fired several shots at a vehicle that tried to run him over Tuesday night in the middle of a busy Charlotte Douglas airport parking deck.
The officer was responding to a suspicious vehicle call in a parking deck on Harlee Avenue at the airport.
Police said an airport employee drove into the parking deck and noticed a car following him.
The employee called police because of an increase in car break-ins.
Police said two officers saw the car leaving and tried to pull it over, but as one of the officers left the patrol vehicle, a suspect drove toward the officer and the officer fired shots at the car.
The suspect took off, but police say a person and car matching the description arrived at the hospital with gunshot wounds.
