Police say Joshua Johnson and a woman tried to cash a stolen check at a Wells Fargo in Ghent.
Police approached their gold Mercedes, and that’s when investigators say one officer was shot and run over by the car as it went in reverse.
21-year-old Joshua Johnson is the man police say was behind the wheel. Johnson was shot by police who say it was in self-defense.
The Commonwealth’s Attorney just weeks ago ruled the Norfolk Police officer’s use of deadly force was justified.
This is something Johnson’s family and friends cannot believe.
They are asking officials to release the video of the day the incident took place.
