North Carolina Officer Survives Late-Night Assassination Attempt

DURHAM (WTVD) –Durham police say a man fired shots at one of their officers Thursday night.
It happened in the area of Lakeland Street and Truman Street around 10 p.m.
A department spokesperson said Officer J.T. West was sitting in his marked patrol car working on a report when he saw two suspicious men coming up from behind his car near an abandoned apartment building.
West got out of his car to speak to the men, but before he could say a word, one of them pulled a handgun from his waistband and fired six shots at the officer. One of the bullets struck the police vehicle.
