FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- The man shot by Fayetteville police officers following a robbery Tuesday has been identified.
Fayetteville Police Department said the man was 28-year-old Christopher Eaton. He now faces multiple charges including robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping, and possession of stolen goods.
Investigators said Eaton was the man who walked into the CVS on Ramsey Street on Tuesday afternoon. He then used a gun to rob the store and ran off.
Police officers caught up with him on the train tracks at Moore Street and Mechanic Street.

Investigators said they recovered a gun at the railroad tracks that they believe belonged to Eaton.
The State Bureau of Investigation is now looking into the case, as is protocol for officer-involved shootings.
None of the officers involved in the case have been identified, but we know none of them were injured.
