Deadly Memphis raid yielded few drugs

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A search warrant says officers found few drugs during a Memphis raid in which an officer was fatally shot.

The Commercial Appeal cited the warrant in reporting that the raid yielded less than 2 pounds of marijuana, 14 ounces of a sleep aid that contains codeine, a gun, ammunition and $4,865 in cash.

Officer Martoiya Lang was fatally shot and Officer William Vrooman received a leg wound when they executed the warrant on Dec. 14.

Police say 21-year-old Treveno Campbell fired at the officers as they pursued 26-year-old Willie Braddock into a back bedroom.

Campbell is still hospitalized with wounds he suffered when officers returned fire.

He is charged with murder and attempted murder and has a Jan. 3 court date.
