WINSTON-SALEM — One North Carolina police officer remains in critical condition after being shot, while a second officer is improving.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that 50-year-old Winston-Salem Sgt. Mickey Hutchens remained in critical condition early Thursday after the shooting a day earlier.

Lt. David Lamb said 28-year-old Officer Daniel Clark was seriously injured but is improving.

Hutchens has been on the police force for 27 years and Clark for six years.

Police did not immediately return a phone call from The Associated Press seeking information on the officers’ conditions.

A suspect was killed in the shooting, which followed a foot chase from a fast-food restaurant. His name has not been released by police.

JACKSONVILLE, N.C. — A jury in North Carolina has convicted a former Marine corporal of attacking his sleeping, pregnant wife with a hammer.

The Daily News of Jacksonville reported that an Onslow County jury found Jonathan Gould guilty Wednesday afternoon of attempted first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious bodily injury.

N.C. Superior Court Judge Jay D. Hockenbury sentenced Gould, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune, to 18 to 22 years in prison.

Erin Gould suffered permanent brain damage in the December 2008 attack. She also lost her unborn child.

Authorities said after Jonathan Gould beat his wife, he stabbed himself multiple times and fabricated a story about their home being robbed early Dec. 20. Investigators have said Gould late confessed to attacking his wife.
