Shooting In Gastonia Today – According to the Gastonia police department, a guy who was shot more than a week ago has passed away. According to the authorities, the guy who is accused of shooting him was shot and killed by police on the same day. On March 26, shortly after 5:00 a.m., authorities were dispatched to Osceola Street after receiving a complaint of a guy armed with a gun pursuing a woman through the parking lot. When the police got to the scene, they found 58-year-old Calvin Wayne Black who was armed with a revolver, according to the police.
According to the police, Black was shot by two officers, and he was pronounced dead at the site. The encounter did not result in any injuries to any of the cops. After conducting their preliminary investigation, the police found evidence that Black had assaulted a woman who was 57 years old. They also discovered a man who was 61 years old inside the house. They assume that Black had shot the man before the police arrived. It is anticipated that the victim of the assault will make a full recovery. Clifford Barton, 61 years old, was sent to a hospital with injuries that were considered to be life-threatening. On Monday, the investigators reported that he had passed away as a result of his injuries.
According to Quinton Bell, he was peering out his window when he witnessed the police enter his neighbor’s home and confront Black. Black was the person who called the police. “They ordered him to put down his weapon,” she said. According to Bell, “He wouldn’t drop it, and he fired on them.” When he turned around, he heard shots being fired. According to Bell, the cops had no other option. “They did their job,” Bell remarked. “I have no complaints.”
“They did not act inappropriately in any way. They fulfilled their obligations, thus they had every right to retaliate against him. The names of the Gastonia police officers who were involved in the shooting will not be made public, according to the department. During the time that an inquiry into what occurred is being carried out by the department, those officers have been placed on administrative leave as is the customary procedure. “Grateful for the heroic work that our officers did that night,” stated Chief Trent Conard of the Gastonia Police Department.
