RELATED: Man dead in Raleigh police-involved shooting; officer shot in leg

Officers are restricting access to the yard where a police officer was shot in the leg and a man with a long criminal record was shot and killed.

Officer B.F. Burleson continues recovering while his partner B.S. Beausoleil is on administrative leave.

Convicted felon Jaqwan Terry, 24, who was not supposed to be carrying a gun, was the suspect who was shot and killed.

Between 2013 and August, records indicate Terry was arrested eight times including in January of this year for possession of a firearm by a felon.

Back on July 26, just a month before the confrontation, he was arrested and charged with assault on a female.

The foot chase started after a 911 call where the caller said, “There’s a man with a gun he’s trespassing he’s not supposed to be here.”

This wasn’t the first time officers were called to that home where Monday’s fatal shooting happened..

“He comes downstairs kicking and screaming. So then he’s like both barking at her with the baby. So I take the baby, so then he runs after me, screaming. He comes back into the house and goes to get a knife and then chases me up the road,” a 911 caller said just over a month ago on July 21.

The distraught woman tells the dispatcher she was a friend of Terry’s girlfriend. And that wasn’t the only 9-1-1 call placed that day.

“I’m going in the house. He’s got a gun. I’m not, no,” another 911 caller who said she’s a neighbor and that she saw a violent argument between a man and woman.

Following all that Terry was charged with assault on a female and assault with a deadly weapon.

At a vigil Tuesday night family and friends came together. they wanted to say that there was another side to Terry.

They said that he was a good person, a father.

But, still too distraught to speak about their loss they urged folks not to rush to judgment.
