A man was shot by Conover Police Officers after he attempted to run them over with his car on Sunday.
Officers responded to a home on 4th Avenue NW to assist an elderly man. The son of the elderly man, 50-year old Clegg Johnson, rammed his car into one of the police vehicles when it arrived. Other officers arrived and when they got out of their cars, Johnson tried to run them over. At that point, officers fired at the vehicle. Johnson was airlifted to a regional medical facility with life-threatening injuries.
The SBI is investigating.
