1 of 2 Officers Shot is in Critical Condition - WGHP
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. - One of two police officers shot as they pursued a suspect along Peters Creek Parkway on Wednesday morning is in critical condition at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.
Sgt. Mickey Hutchens, 50, was critically injured as he and Officer Daniel Clark, 28, chased a suspect into a creek behind a Bojangles restaurant and other businesses in the 1500 block of Peters Creek Parkway.
At a news conference Wednesday afternoon, assistant police chief Barry Rountree said Hutchens was in critical condition and Clark in serious condition at the hospital.
The suspect, identified as Monte Denard Evans of Winston-Salem by the Winston-Salem Journal, was killed.
According to Rountree, police received a call from a female employee at the Bojangles on Peters Creek Parkway saying she had seen her ex-husband, who was apparently wanted on outstanding warrants.
The two officers responded and pursued the Evans on foot into Salem Creek, where he was shot and killed.
Witnesses reported hearing six or seven gunshots, and the owner of Alpha Commercial Printing, Daryl Hinshaw, watched the chase and said he saw one officer down.
An employee at Precision Auto said that he saw a man pacing outside the auto shop, then saw the man go to the Bojangles restaurant nearby. The restaurant manager apparently called police. The suspect ran behind Precision Auto, dropped a red backpack and ran into Salem Creek. More information from the Winston-Salem Journal.
The initial call about the robbery came in shortly before 10:30 a.m., according to police.
Several dozen police cars and ambulances were at or near the Bojangles at 1535 Peters Creek Parkway, while the street was blocked to traffic. One lane has since been opened to traffic. Area businesses were placed under lock down.
The State Bureau of Investigation is now investigating the case, Rountree said.

Prayers for both officers. Fight it , guys.SI VIS PACEM PARA BELLUM-Ex-Sheriff Martin Howe to Will Kane in "High Noon"
"It's a great life. You risk your skin catching killers and the juries turn them loose so they can come back and shoot at you again. If your honest , your poor your whole life. And , In the end , you wind up dying all alone on some dirty street. For what? For nothing. For a tin star."
Far from being a handicap to command, compassion is the measure of it. For unless one values the lives of his soldiers and is tormented by their ordeals , he is unfit to command.
