Officer Anthony Nobles and Officer John T. Burnette were shot and killed after a foot chase with a suspect.

The Officers had stopped a suspicious van in an apartment complex. The suspect fled on foot into the woods surrounding the complex. When the officers entered the woods, the suspect attacked them and was able to disarm Officer Burnette. He then shot both officers.

The officers were transported to Carolinas Medical Center by responding officers, where both were pronounced dead on arrival.

The suspect was arrested nearby after a brief manhunt involving over 700 officers from various local, state, and federal agencies in North Carolina and South Carolina. He was later convicted of two counts of first degree murder and sentenced to death.

Officer Nobles had been employed with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department for 4 years. He is survived by his parents and two brothers.

The city of Charlotte named a park and two streets in honor of Officer Burnette and Officer Nobles.

Andy lived at D Vinca cir and I lived at A... He was such a great friend and I LOVED Max, his big teddy bear, Rottweiler. We had gotten into a routine of me studying and when he got home we would watch "Bad Boys". I never had a romantic relationship with Andy but I loved him un the less. His kind heart and soul. To this day one of my most painful nights... the words I heard from his roommate... Andy has been shot.

I remember what I was reading that night. I was reading "Slow Waltz on Cedar Bend". I still want to read this book again because I think of Andy every time I pick it up.

After everything that has happened these past weeks with our wonderful officers I can not stop thinking about Andy.

I am going to read my book. I am going to honor Andy and I am going to love this country, my family, my friends and everything that ANDY died for!

It has been many years but for Andy's family and friends I want you to know I loves him. He was and still is an amazing man and I will never forget him.

God Bless our men and women in uniform. Thank you. Stephanie
