CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department announced charges Thursday against the man who allegedly barricaded himself inside a Steele Creek apartment Wednesday and fired shots at responding CMPD officers.
Antoine Debold has been charged with three counts of attempted murder, three counts of assault on a law enforcement officer with a firearm, assault on a female, and possession of firearm by felon.
Shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday, CMPD officers responding to a 911 call for a reported domestic violence call were met by alleged gunfire from Debold, who police said had barricaded himself inside an apartment.
The officers were not injured and did not return gunfire, officials said Wednesday. Personnel from CMPD's SWAT team and tactical negotiators responded to the scene.
After nearly an hour, police said Debold had peacefully surrendered. Debold was transported to Atrium Health's Carolina Medical Center hospital for a medical evaluation, CMPD said. He was then transported for a police interview and eventually into the custody of the Mecklenburg County’s Sheriff’s Office.
During the course of the investigation, CMPD learned Debold is out on parole for Criminal Possession of a Firearm in New York.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about this case is asked to provide that information by calling 911. The public can also leave information anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers at 704-334-1600 or http://charlottecrimestoppers.com/.
