Charlotte-Mecklenburg police officers shot and killed a homicide suspect late Thursday after the man apparently opened fire on a group of officers outside police headquarters, hitting one in the leg and sending others scrambling to return fire.

Officers were called to the 4100 block of Carlyle Drive around 1:40 p.m. Thursday, where they found 23-year-old Brittany White with a gunshot wound inside a home.

Police Chief Kerr Putney told Channel 9 that Jonathan Bennett, 23, ambushed and shot at officers who were standing outside headquarters around 10:45 p.m., and officers returned fire.

Preliminary info indicates that a CMPD Officer has been shot in leg. Police say they had a child together.

"It's obvious he knew we were looking for him", Putney said.

Police in North Carolina shot and killed a man outside the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Law Enforcement Center hours after the man allegedly killed the mother of his infant daughter.

Bennett was considered armed and risky.

"Slow your traffic, slow your traffic, nobody get hurt", the officer said.

Police said they were briefing in the parking lot between the law enforcement center and the CMPD parking deck, when they were shot at multiple times. Detectives say Bennett was believed to have taken the 2-month-old girl with him when he left the scene. Investigators said he later died at the hospital. "You could've talked it out or came and talked to me", said Vincent Tillery.

"Do the right thing, John".

This is the first homicide reported in the Queen City in 2018.

Bennett has been jailed at least three times in Mecklenburg County since 2016, for charges including assault on a female, communicating threats and larceny.
