GASTONIA, N.C. (WJZY) — Several 911 calls have been released in connection to a reported kidnapping turned officer-involved shooting that occurred Wednesday in Gastonia.

New 911 calls allege that the now deceased suspect, Jason Lipscomb, 21, had taken a woman’s vehicle without her consent and was not authorized to pick up two children from a local day care.

A spokesperson for the police department said the situation started around 12:30 p.m. Wednesday as a call for kidnapping at Precious Moments Daycare on West 5th Avenue. They said a family member of two young children informed them Lipscomb had picked up the children from the facility without authorization.

Lipscomb’s stepfather, Robert Hamlett, said the children are the kids of his stepson’s in-laws.

Police said they received information the two kidnapped children were with Lipscomb in the 400 block of North Edgemont Avenue in Gastonia. The two children were found at the location safe and unharmed.

Video obtained this week shows the moments Lipscomb attempted to flee the scene. Video shows him running over a Gastonia officer with his vehicle as a flurry of shots are fired by police at Lipscomb, ultimately killing him.

“During the course of that investigation, the suspect was operating a vehicle, struck one of our officers, and at least one officer discharged his service weapon,” said Rick Goodale with the Gastonia Police Department.

Surveillance video shows multiple Gastonia police officers firing their service weapons.

Goodale said the officer that was run over by Lipscomb was taken to the hospital with serious injuries.

A staff member at Precious Moments Daycare declined to comment on the situation, saying the investigation is ongoing.

The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation is investigating the officer-involved shooting, and Gastonia Police Internal Affairs division is conducting its own investigation as well.

The officers who discharged their weapons will be placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, as is customary with officer-involved shootings.
