GRAHAM, N.C. — A person died late Wednesday night after pointing a gun at officers.

Officers from the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office and the Mebane Police Department were both involved in a chase on Wednesday around 11:50 p.m.

Officials say the chase started in Orange County and ended right around midnight at the intersection of W. Harden St. and N. Maple St. in Graham.

One suspect exited the vehicle and displayed a weapon. An Alamance County deputy and a Mebane police officer shot the person, who died.

No officers were injured in the shooting, but both have been placed on a standard administrative leave pending completion of an SBI investigation.
