The armed suspect at the Raleigh suburb of Apex is going to be identified by state medical examiners. He is believed to be Greg Alyn Carlson, age 47, according to the FBI’s North Carolina office in a press release. Authorities stated he was wanted for connections with multiple sexual assaults, including sexual assault and burglary in Los Angeles during the fall of last year.
When an FBI spokeswoman was asked whether the man exchanged gunfire with the agents, she did not respond. Police Captain Mitch McKinney of Apex stated his officers had been contacted following the FBI raid to secure the scene of the incident. The Police Captain said he does not have any information about the shooting.
“Agents approached the room and tried to take Carlson into custody. Following an altercation over a gun, Carlson was shot to death by FBI agents,” Assistant director of the FBI’s Los Angeles office, Paul Delacourt said during a press conference statement.
