A preliminary investigation has revealed on Monday, January 14 at approximately 5:15p.m., a state trooper was shot while conducting a traffic stop on Hanes Rd in Wilson County.

Trooper D. C. Harrell, a five-year veteran assigned to Wilson County, was transported to a local hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries. Authorities from several local and state agencies are actively searching for the suspect who is considered to be armed and dangerous. Residents in the area are encouraged to contact 911 if they see any suspicious activity.

"This needless assault provides another reminder of the perils law enforcement officers face each day”, said Colonel Glenn McNeill Jr, commander of the State Highway Patrol. “I would ask everyone to keep Trooper Harrell’s family and our entire organization in their thoughts and prayers.”
