CONCORD, N.C. (WBTV) -

Officers investigating a tip about a wanted suspect shot and killed the suspect Monday morning in Concord.

The U.S. Marshals Service, FBI, and the Cabarrus County Sheriff's Office responded to a home on the 300 block of Freedom Street SW in response to the tip.

When officers arrived at the home at about 6:45 a.m., they said 22-year-old Anthony Desean Meeks was at a back window with a gun.

Officers say Meeks came out of the window with the gun, and officers fired at him. Meeks was killed.

Meeks was wanted for violating his probation on a felony charge. He was also wanted for several pending charges of robbery, assault on a female, and illegal drugs.

According to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety, Meeks was convicted in 2011 for carrying a concealed weapon, possessing stolen goods, and resisting an officer. His record also shows a 2012 conviction for felony possession of a firearm, resisting an officer, and drugs.
