Raleigh, North Carolina — On May 7, at approximately 1:20 p.m.., a Raleigh Police Department officer observed an individual in the parking lot of the Southeast District police station, lighting multiple vehicles on fire. The individual was later identified as Reuel Rodriguez Nunez (37 years old). Nunez was using incendiary weapons, more commonly known as Molotov cocktails. The officer immediately requested additional assistance. Once other officers arrived, commands were given to Nunez to stop his actions.
Nunez continued to throw multiple Molotov cocktails in the parking lot and eventually threw one in the direction of an officer. Four officers discharged their weapons and Nunez was struck multiple times. No officers were injured during the encounter. Due to two vehicles being engulfed in flames (an RPD patrol car and another vehicle), the officers moved the individual away from the area and attempted life-saving efforts on-scene before he was transported to the hospital where he was subsequently pronounced deceased.
