Police officer-involved shooting at Raleigh office complex

RALEIGH (WTVD) -- The Raleigh Police Department says its officers were involved in the shooting of a man at an office complex in the 3800 block of Raleigh's Barrett Drive - off Six Forks Road near Interstate 440 - Wednesday morning.

Officers were called to the office building, which houses several medical businesses and state facilities, around 9 a.m. about an "assault in progress" on the second floor.

According to a 911 call, a patient at Family Preservation Services of North Carolina -- which provides counseling and mental health services -- attacked a staff member.

"We need somebody in suite 200 right now," the caller told the 911 operator. "There is a patient attacking one of our staff members."

The operator then asked if anyone had any weapons, and the caller said she didn't "know what this man has."

When police arrived, an officer shot the patient - 33-year-old Marcel Leroy Jordan. He was wounded in the torso. He was last listed in serious condition at WakeMed.

The Raleigh Police Department identified the officer who shot Jordan as S.C. Nziuki. She has been a member of the RPD since May 2012.

The SBI is investigating the incident, which is standard in officer-involved shootings.

During the incident, some of the other offices in the building were evacuated as a precaution.
