DUDLEY, NC (WNCN) — The man suspected of fatally shooting a Wayne County assemblyman and injuring two others in a standoff before dying from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound has been arrested on two misdemeanors in the last, according to records indicted for two years.
Wayne County Public Information Officer Joel Gillie released the booking photo of Jourdan Trayvius Hamilton, 23, from an earlier arrest Tuesday, a day after the three deputies were shot while delivering paperwork.
Hamilton received misdemeanors last year for making threats and defying an officer in 2019, according to records from the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.
Authorities arrived at the Dudley home Monday to serve papers for an involuntary commitment when they say the suspect set the fire on Sgt. Matthew Fishman, Cpl. Andrew Cox and deputy Alexander Ramon Torres.
Fishman died from injuries sustained in the shooting, Gillie said Tuesday.
Cox, 37, and Torres, 27, were in stable condition late Monday night, Gillie said.
Gillie said Hamilton suffered what appeared to be a self-inflicted gunshot wound inside the home and died.
