Officer in shooting was suspended for day last year

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police officer charged with voluntary manslaughter in the killing of an unarmed man early Saturday served a one-day suspension last year, records obtained by the Observer show.

Officer Randall Kerrick, 27, was arrested Saturday night and released soon after under $50,000 bond.

The Hickory Grove officer was suspended for eight hours in December. The records do not list the reason for the suspension.

Kerrick, a third-year officer, joined CMPD in 2011, officials said. He graduated from the academy in October 2011.

Records show that he worked as an animal care and control officer before becoming a police training recruit. His first employment date is listed as March 2010.

Kerrick’s annual salary is $44,482. He lives in Midland, east of Charlotte, in Cabarrus County.
