Master Police Officer Jeremiah Goodson was shot and killed as he and another officer attempted to arrest a homicide suspect at a local gas station in the 5000 block of Fayetteville Road. Officer Goodson, who was off duty, was at the gas station and recognized the subject as being wanted for homicide. He called the police department and notified other officers of the subject’s location. Another officer arrived and the two began to approach the car the subject was sitting in. The man opened fire from inside the vehicle, striking Officer Goodson in the chest. The second officer and other responding units took the man into custody. Officer Goodson had served with the Lumberton Police Department for six years.
On behalf of the Wake & District family we would like to extend our sincere condolences to the Lumberton Police Department on their loss.
