On Monday afternoon, a U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force attempted to apprehend a career felon, Terry Clark Hughes. Usually the Marshals get their man, even violent fugitives like Hughes. Unfortunately, on this day the 39-year-old Hughes saw them coming.

In the end, the career felon shot and killed four law enforcement officers attempting to take him into custody (again) for a felon in possession of firearms. He wounded at least four other officers before he was shot dead.

WSOC has the report:

CHARLOTTE — Monday marked a dark day for Charlotte, as four officers died and four more were shot while they were working “to keep the city safe.”

The chief of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department confirmed an officer with the department and three members of the U.S. Marshals Fugitive Task Force were killed in a shootout Monday while serving a warrant in east Charlotte.

CMPD Officer Joshua Eyer was critically wounded earlier before he died at the hospital, the chief said. He leaves behind a wife and a 3-year-old son.

New video from a neighbor’s house shows the chaos of one side of the shootout. It shows one U.S. Marshal shot twice and at least two others firing from behind cover.

WSOC named the deceased officers following the tragic turn of events.

CHARLOTTE — The chief of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department said they are not looking for any more suspects after four officers were killed and four more were shot in the line of duty on Monday.

Three members of a U.S. Marshals fugitive task force, deputy U.S. Marshal Thomas Weeks, North Carolina Department of Adult Corrections workers Sam Poloche and William “Alden” Elliott, were killed while serving a warrant at an east Charlotte home.

CMPD Officer Joshua Eyer was critically wounded before he died at the hospital Monday, Chief Johnny Jennings said.

Just over a week earlier, US Attorney General Merrick Garland admitted that gang members and repeat offenders drive violent crime involving firearms in America. This incident just proves his point.

It’s not gun violence, it’s gang violence.

Our condolences for the law enforcement officers who lost their lives and our best wishes for a recovery for the ones wounded.
