Greensboro, North Carolina — On August 21, 2022, at approximately 9:08 p.m., Corporal M.L. Sletten was driving on W Market St when he observed a vehicle behind him driving with high beams on. Corporal Sletten slows down, the vehicle passes in front of him, and eventually pulls into a parking lot entrance at 4903 W Market Street, in front of a Dollar General. Corporal Sletten activates his blue lights and initiates the traffic stop of a white 2018 Nissan Altima with a Florida license plate, later known to be operated by Nasanto Antonio Crenshaw. After Corporal Sletten activates his lights behind the Nissan, the vehicle continues to drive through the parking lot without stopping. At this time, Corporal Sletten asks for another officer to provide assistance to his location, advising that the Nissan was not complying with the attempted stop.
The Nissan continues through the lot,and eventually comes to a stop. Corporal Sletten exits his patrol car and approaches the Nissan when suddenly the driver accelerates away from the traffic stop. Corporal Sletten then returns to his patrol vehicle, continues to follow the Nissan, and notifies Communications that the Nissan had driven away from the stop. At that time, Communications informs Corporal Sletten the Nissan is reported stolen or “10-99” from Fayetteville, NC earlier that day. The Nissan continues to a dead end area of the parking lot. Corporal Sletten approaches the Nissan again when 3 subjects exit the rear passenger side and begin running away, leaving the rear passenger door open. Corporal Sletten pulls his patrol vehicle up to the Nissan, attempting to block it in. At that time, the driver backs the car up while turning, colliding with the front of the patrol vehicle. The driver collides with the patrol vehicle at the same time Corporal Sletten is getting out of his car.
Corporal Sletten provides commands for the occupants to “get on the ground”. As Corporal Sletten walks around the rear of the patrol vehicle, he repeats- “get on the ground, do it now”. At that moment, the driver places the Nissan in drive and begins to accelerate forward, toward where Corporal Sletten is standing. Corporal Sletten gives the command “stop” and then discharges his duty weapon 3 times. Two of the shots go through the front windshield and one shot goes through the front passenger window. Corporal Sletten tells Communications “shots fired”. The Nissan makes contact with the curb, coming to a complete stop. Once the vehicle comes to a complete stop, one juvenile remains in the front passenger seat of the Nissan and is not injured. Corporal Sletten begins making commands to this passenger, calling for assistance to the scene and calling for units to assist with rendering aid to the driver. Corporal Sletten radios that he has one person detained, one person suffering from gunshot wounds, and one of the passengers that previously fled is on foot down W Market Street.
Corporal Sletten repeats these radio updates, his location, and his commands to the passenger. Corporal Sletten observes a responding patrol car stop on W Market Street near the on-foot subject and radios for all cars to turn around and come render aid to the driver. Corporal Sletten detains the passenger and makes his way to the driver side of the Nissan, attempting to open the door and render aid. When he cannot open the locked door, Corporal Sletten begins breaking the glass while requesting EMS again. Assisting officers begin arriving to the scene. Officers open the driver door and carry Nasanto Crenshaw out of the vehicle. Corporal Sletten begins chest compressions on Nasanto Crenshaw and then assisting officers take over CPR efforts. Three officers work on rendering aid until care is transferred to EMS upon their arrival. Nasanto Crenshaw was declared deceased by the on-scene EMS personnel.
