14-year-old with 46 prior criminal cases shoots police officer

Newly released bodycam footage shows a 14-year-old shot shooting a North Carolina officer in December 2021.

On Wednesday, Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police released the footage of the officer-involved shooting that occurred on Monday, Dec. 27, 2021.

Officers were called to the scene of a larceny from a vehicle after a 911 caller stated that a person had pointed a firearm at a nearby resident.

When officers arrived on the scene, the suspect led them on a short chase and fired at the pursuing officer, Elliott Whitley.

Whitley was able to return fire, after being struck in the shoulder but was not able to strike the suspect.

The suspect was captured without incident and identified as a juvenile with an extensive criminal history.

According to Fox8, the teen has 46 criminal cases dating back as far as 2014.

Officer Whitley was taken to a hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries. 

An investigation determined that Officer Whitley was justified in shooting at the teen who had shot him.
