• Federal appeals court to consider Charlotte police shooting case


    ppeals court will hear arguments on whether a Charlotte police officer used proper force when he shot and wounded a 15-year-old who was trying to help his injured mother.

    The U.S. 4th Circuit Court of Appeals will hear arguments in the case at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va., on Thursday morning.

    The judges will consider Charlotte's claim that Officer William Wilson deserves what is known as "qualified immunity" in the shooting in 2010 that wounded Jeffrey Green.

    The shooting happened during a confrontation with the officer after the teen's mother was stabbed by her boyfriend.

    No charges were filed in the shooting and Wilson remains with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

    The teen's mother sued the city in 2011.
