Raleigh Police Officer Shot Multiple Times, Two Arrested and Charged with Attempted Murder

RALEIGH – No matter how tame a neighborhood may seem, our laudable law enforcement officers risk their lives everyday they put on the uniform. Officer C.D. Ainsworth is out of successful emergency surgery after he was shot multiple times while investigating a stolen car case. Two men have been arrested and charged in connection with stolen car and subsequent shooting.

From ABC11:

Officer Ainsworth, according to reports, is an N.C. State graduate. He was investigating a stolen car at an apartment complex off of Western Boulevard when the shooting occurred. The shots came from the stolen car in question, and Ainsworth was hit multiple times.
