Charges not expected against man shot by Raleigh police
Posted December 19, 2014
Raleigh, N.C. — Wake County's chief prosecutor said Friday that he doesn't anticipate charges against a man who was shot by a Raleigh police officer Wednesday morning.
Authorities say Officer S.C. Nziuki shot Marcel Leroy Jordan in the torso while she was responding to a 911 call about a man attacking an employee at a mental-health counseling center on Barrett Drive.
Jordan, 33, was in critical condition Friday at a local hospital.
District Attorney Ned Mangum said the case remains under investigation and would not comment on the circumstances of the case.
Police also have not said what led to the shooting, but a preliminary report to Raleigh's city manager that is expected next week could provide more details.
Sources told WRAL News that Jordan allegedly charged at Nziuki with a pair of scissors.
Meanwhile, Nziuki – a Raleigh police officer since May 2012 – is on administrative duty while the State Bureau of Investigation and the Internal Affairs Unit of the Raleigh Police Department conduct investigations.
That's standard protocol for officer-involved shootings.
