N.C. officer dies chasing suspect

Read Sergeant Hardin's Officer Down

HOPE MILLS, N.C. -- A North Carolina police sergeant died Thursday after collapsing while chasing a suspect.

Authorities say Sergeant James Keith Hardin, 35, was running along US 301 at the time with a K9 and another officer.

According to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s watch commander, suspect Ricky Allen Wilson, Jr., was captured on Thursday at 5:25 p.m. He was wanted on a misdemeanor charge of unauthorized use of motor vehicle. He’s now also charged with felony speeding to elude arrest.

Hardin, who had been promoted from corporal to sergeant in July, is survived by his wife, Shelly, and two children.
