Sarasota officer shoots man who pulled out a gun

On April 1 around 5 p.m., police said Kurt Lee Walters, 30, of Zebulon called 911 to report that he was wanted for absconding parole and he would wait for officers at the Walmart on E. Gannon Avenue.

When they attempted to speak with him, police said the man reached for his waste-band and produced a pellet gun, but at the time, it appeared to be a real weapon.

Police said Officer Nathanial Brown, 52, fired one shot at Walters, striking him in the neck. That's when police say Gick pulled a gun from his waistband. He was in stable condition at a local hospital later Sunday.

Parker Police officers responded to the 10800 block of Twenty Mile Road on reports of a suspicious person knocking on people's doors. Prichard has been the department for 10 years. Both officers rendered first aid until fire rescue arrived. They also haven't released the name of the suspect or the officers involved.

Officers Adam Arena and Jonathan Torres were not hurt. There's no risk to anybody in Zebulon.

A woman seen going into the nearby store had a similar long braid to the one police said was there during the burglary.

Authorities said Walters has had no previous encounters with the Zebulon Police Department, but has a lengthy criminal record. Police said they suspect Walters stole that vehicle and used it to drive to the area.

The State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the incident, which is standard protocol for officer-involved shootings.

A vehicle reported as stolen on Sunday to the Wake County Sheriff's Office was found in the Walmart parking lot where Walters said he would meet officers. The North Carolina Department of Corrections has a valid warrant for Walters for being a parole absconder, police said.
