Suspect at scene of officer killing arraigned

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- A drug suspect arrested at the scene of a fatal shooting of a Memphis police officer has been arraigned.

According to The Commercial Appeal, Willie Braddock, who is 26, was given until Jan. 2 to hire an attorney to represent him on his third drug arrest this year.

Braddock was arrested during a drug investigation early Friday in which city police Officer Martoiya Lang was fatally shot and Officer William Vrooman received a leg wound.

Police returned fire, striking and wounding 21-year-old Treveno Campbell, who they said fired at them. Campbell is charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder. He was taken to the Regional Medical Center with critical wounds after the shooting.

Braddock was released on $40,000 bond on Saturday. His arraignment was Monday.
