Woman shot as police stop for I-40 crash
The North Carolina Highway Patrol said a trooper and a deputy shot a woman on the side of the interstate Saturday after she fired at them first.
Highway Patrol Sgt. Michael Baker said Tina Medlin, 50, was in critical condition Saturday.
Baker said Trooper J.L. Taylor and Johnston County deputy Taylor Davis were investigating an SUV crash on Interstate 40 near Benson about 6:30 a.m. and found Medlin lying on the highway with a gun.
Baker said Medlin fired at the officers, who shot back. The officers were not injured and are on administrative leave, he said.
