The FBI says law officers in North Carolina have killed a man on the list of Ten Most Wanted Fugitives for armed sexual assaults in California, Greg Alyn Carlson.
Greg Carlson was seen in Mt. Pleasant just last year. Police tell us he has ties to the area and allegedly fled to a family home in after posting bond in Los Angeles.
According to a police report,he stole a handgun, a significant amount of cash from that family home, then left, even stealing a rental car.
The FBI’s North Carolina office says agents moved in on a motel in the Raleigh suburb of Apex on Wednesday, after an Apex officer spotted a suspicous car and confirmed it had ties to Carlson.
He was wanted in connection with multiple crimes including a burglary and sexual assault in Los Angeles last fall.
The FBI says the raid at that Apex hotel on Wednesday, led to the shooting death of Carlson, who was armed at the time.
An FBI spokeswoman did not respond when asked whether the man exchanged gunfire with agents.
The FBI said previously it had tracked Carlson not only to South Carolina, but also to Alabama and Florida.
