WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Wilmington Police have released new details in an officer-involved shooting Tuesday that had four Wilmington schools on lockdown for hours during a standoff.

Police say as officers tried to arrest Jermaine Cordova, 36, he pulled a gun. That led a vice narcotics agent and a uniformed officer to draw their own weapons and fire.

While running through a backyard, Cordova ran into a second vice narcotics officer who had been chasing his passenger Christopher Williams, and once again exchange fire. At some point during the chase Cordova was shot in the knee. He is in the hospital under 24-hour watch.

The three officers involved are on administrative leave pending the results of a SBI investigation.
