Woman suspected in kidnapping shot after firing on NC State Trooper
Officials say a woman suspected in a kidnapping attempt was shot and wounded after she fired on a member of the North Carolina State Highway Patrol.
The patrol was notified early Tuesday of several hit-and-run crashes between McDowell and Burke counties and a kidnapping on Interstate 40.
When patrol Sgt. Aaron Johnson arrived, he found a truck on the shoulder and officials say a woman in the truck bed fired at him.
Johnson returned fire and struck her. She was taken to the hospital and is in stable condition.
The patrolman wasn’t injured and - was placed on administrative duty.
