NORTH CAROLINA – Three officers from a U.S. Marshals task force lost their lives during a warrant operation on Monday in Charlotte, North Carolina, according to authorities.

Alongside the three marshals who were fatally shot, four officers from the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department were also wounded, with one officer reported to be in critical condition, officials disclosed during a news briefing on Monday afternoon.

Officials confirmed that a suspect involved in the incident had also been killed. The fatal encounter occurred as a fugitive task force executed a warrant on an individual who was in possession of a firearm as a convicted felon.

Earlier in the day, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department had issued a statement mentioning that multiple law enforcement officers had been shot. Around 2 p.m., the police urged the public through a post on X to avoid the 5000 block of Galway Drive, citing ongoing gunfire at the location.

“Numerous law enforcement officers have been hit by gunfire in an active situation in the 5000 block of Galway Drive. The area remains volatile,” the police department cautioned.

In total, eight law enforcement officers fell victim to the gunfire during the incident.
