Police have identified a man they say traded shots with an officer on West Trade Street earlier this week. Officers encourage anyone with information on the whereabouts of Devaron Ricardo Wilburn, 21, to call the Violent Criminal Apprehension Team at 704-336-VCAT or 911.

Police say Wilburn fired at officers responding to a report of a robbery at the Family Dollar on Trade Street on Tuesday night.
