The Randolph County Sheriff's Office was called to a home on Hwy. 49 North near Ramseur after somebody called 911.

Deputies tried to speak to the suspect and the suspect pulled out a "edged weapon" and cut and stabbed Lieutenant Kevin Walton, according to a sheriff's office press release.

A short chase started and Harris was taken into custody.

Walton was taken to Randolph Hospital and has been treated and released.

Detective Joshua Santiago was also injured by Harris, but did not require medical treatment, according to deputies.
