Raleigh, North Carolina — On March 27, 2023, Raleigh Police received several calls about a suspect standing in the middle of the Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Coleman Street intersection while shooting at occupied vehicles. Police said a caller reported the suspect unsuccessfully tried to open the door of a car stopped at a traffic light. Officers got there at 6:57 a.m. and reported seeing the suspect make their way into a nearby residential neighborhood on Cumberland Street, Raleigh police said. Ligon Middle School was briefly put on a lockdown as the situation unfolded a short distance from the school. Body cam and dash cam video show the three officers (Sgt. R.A. Sirianna and Officers M.L. Adams and P.J. Fernstrum) arriving at the 700 block of Cumberland Street, just east of downtown, around 7 a.m.
The officers saw the suspect, identified as Jorge Luis Vega-Lesam. The officers got out of their cars and began to approach him. Adams sees he is armed and relays this to the other officers. Several shots are heard coming from the suspect’s direction. Adams fires three times at Vega-Lesama. Vega-Lesama then retreats behind a house in the neighborhood temporarily. Seconds later, he begins firing at officers again. Officer Sirianna exit his police vehicle with a rifle. He is repeatedly fired at and cannot determine where the suspect is shooting from. Sirianna then fires four shots, killing the suspect. Officers then call for an urgent EMS response before approaching the downed Vega-Lesama. Police said he was found with a handgun with an additional magazine lying next to him. Vega-Lesama fired five shots at officers.

Great job officers for keeping everyone in the neighborhood safe.
This officer is a smooth operator. As professional as they come. Awesome job.
.223 headshot. GEEZ
Honestly, Nice job by the officer of keeping his cool, and taking control of the scene.
Witnessing or hearing all that insanity before getting your morning coffee?, Now that's traumatic!.
Someone send this to Uvalde sheriff dept
This is also why civilians need AR15s
On Martin Luther King blvd😂😂😂😂
They shot his head off! 😮🤯
He was on Martin Luther King BLVD…😂 Im sure Raleigh will give him a street to honor him.
I don't understand why someone would choose to act in this manner.
Nothing ever good happens on Martin Luther King Blvd
See his hat go flying off!! Wow!! If the shot to the head did that to him I don't think he's going to pull through!!
I watched the ending 10 times shot to the had guy's
Probably the most calm and controlled group of officers in an active shoot out Ive seen in a while.
The officer with the long rifle, before he radioed the suspect was down, what fell down? was that debris from the car or the rifle?
I don’t use code when I’m talking to my partner .. just say he has a firearm or he has a gun .. the department I worked for before didn’t allow 10 code has in 10-4 or 10-31 .. we just used 1-9 codes mostly and used normal talk ..
Great leadership officer 👍
Probably one of the most professional acting group of officers I’ve seen on this channel. Smooth, calm , controlled and concise….didn’t devolve into a bunch of expletive spewing, out of control maniacs that are in so many of these videos.
Stop getting on the radio reporting "shots fired." No one is coming to back you up at that moment. You have what you need to win the fight. Get to work and put the bad guy down.
Remember kids a handgun is a DEFENSIVE weapon, a rifle is an OFFENSIVE weapon and it is very hard to score while on defense.

Blms definition of hard-working African-American, who never did anything wrong
Excellent police work. They neutralized the criminal
Boot licking comments. If a neighbor had a gun, they could have ended the threat.
Firing your weapon is instant adrenaline overload.
ขอชื่นชมเจ้าหน้าทีประเทศของคุณปฎิบัติหน้าทึ่ได้ดีมากและเด็ดขาด ขอให้พวกคุณปลอดภัย F.C.💙🙂🙏
Nice takedown of the suspect.
And I swear if the family comes out saying "They didn't need to shoot him, he wasn't tryna hurt nobody" or try to sue the city for $10 million dollars (or some ludicrous amount) they should be incarcerated for 30 days to teach them a lesson.
Man I could feel the adrenaline and terror of the carbine officer
Remember guys Black Lives Matter !!!😂😂😂😂
We need these to not be blurred
perfect…. he won't be doing that any more
1:30 Goes the dome.
No statue for you
Did he clip the truck front end or ya think it was shockwave?
