— A 28-year-old man wounded in a Nov. 30 altercation with Raleigh police was arrested Friday upon his release from WakeMed.

Chijioke Kennedy Madueke was taken to the Wake County jail and charged with assault with a deadly weapon on a government official.

Officers responding to a break-in at an apartment at 1230 University Court confronted a knife-wielding Madueke, who had been evicted earlier in the day, police said.

Madueke rushed the three officers, who all fired at him, police said. He was wounded in the arm, leg and torso.

First Class Officer C.N. Chandler was hit in his ballistic vest during the crossfire, police said.
