HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina say they are searching for a suspect who they say fired a gun at a High Point officer.

The Greensboro News & Record reported Tuesday that the officer had responded Monday afternoon to a report of multiple larcenies from motor vehicles.

Police said the officer knocked on the window of an Audi to speak with the driver. But police said the suspect refused to roll down the window down before opening the door and firing a handgun.

Police said the suspect fired at the officer’s face and narrowly missed. The officer retreated behind his patrol car and returned fire.

Police said that another car picked up the suspect and fled. The incident remains under investigation.
