The deputy said they saw Belk return back inside her home, and she said she was getting her gun. The three deputies on the scene retreated to maintain a safe distance.
Belk then walked back outside of her residence holding a black semiautomatic handgun. She refused to comply with the deputies’ orders to drop the weapon.
When the resident raised the weapon and pointed it toward the deputies, Deputy Albert Johnson III, who was one of the three deputies on site, discharged his duty weapon several times, striking Belk. No other injuries were reported.
