FIRST ON 3: Leland Police officer also under investigation for checkpoint shooting
LELAND, NC (WWAY) — A Leland Police officer is also part of the investigation into a shooting at a DWI checkpoint Friday night.
The town put Ofc. Anthony Bernard on administrative leave with pay Monday.
Seven deputies from Brunswick and New Hanover counties are also part of the SBI probe.
Town manager David Hollis says he did not send out a news release about Bernard because the Sheriff’s Office already had. He says he’s not sure why Bernard’s name has not been mentioned until now.
Two men in the car were injured. They face several charges, including assault with a deadly weapon.
