Wilmington’s Police Chief says the three men shot by law enforcement officers Friday night had weapons—but did not fire at officers.
The lawmen approached the men as they left the Pizza Hut on South 17th street after a robbery.
The chief says they were ordered to stop and drop their weapons—but instead, they ran toward the officers.
Two of the suspects were shot and killed. One was shot in the hand and is now in jail.
The SBI is investigating.
