Samuel Poloche,William Elliott Obituary – During a press conference held on Tuesday, the police provided updates regarding the four law enforcement officers who were injured, as well as identified the four officers who were shot and killed on Monday while attempting to serve a warrant in east Charlotte.

The deceased officers, Samuel Poloche and William Elliott, were affiliated with the North Carolina Department of Corrections, while Joshua Eyer served with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department and Thomas Weeks was a deputy U.S. Marshal, according to CMPD chief Johnny Jennings.

All four officers who sustained injuries during the shooting were members of the CMPD. Officer Christopher Tolley remains hospitalized but is in stable condition, while officers Michael Giglio, Jack Blowers, and Justin Campbell were released yesterday.

The Charlotte police investigators recovered two firearms, an AR-15 rifle and a handgun, along with ammunition from the crime scene. The incident occurred at a residence where the officers encountered gunfire while attempting to serve a warrant for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

Authorities stated that there were two additional individuals present in the home with the suspect. When the police approached the body of the suspect, identified as Terry Clark Hughes Jr., who was killed in the shooting, they were met with more gunfire. However, Jennings expressed uncertainty on Tuesday regarding the presence of a second shooter, as reported by CBS News.

A total of twelve CMPD officers discharged their weapons during the shootout, and all twelve have been placed on standard administrative leave while the investigation is ongoing.

The two unidentified women who were in the home are cooperating with the investigation and are not considered suspects or persons of interest as of Tuesday morning.

“Officers responded quickly and bravely yesterday,” stated North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper on Tuesday. “Dangerous assignments are part of the job. They step up and do it anyway to protect our communities and families.”
