Search warrant released in Cornelius officer shooting

 We're hearing for the first time in the newly released search warrant about a possible drug problem, and a detailed timeline of the events that landed Greyson Ferrell in jail for attempted murder.

It's a search warrant that reads like a timeline of terror for officers and for the family of Greyson Ferrell.

The call came in around 11:30 Saturday morning. The caller told dispatchers their son was, "trying to fight everyone".

Shortly after officers got to the scene, things went from tense to tragic. Just 9 minutes after the call came into 911, Lt. Quattlebaum radioed that an officer had been shot. The officer was him.

Minutes later, backup arrived and took Greyson Ferrell into custody.

According to the search warrant, the suspect's mother told police her son had a drug problem and is, "Out of control when he's on drugs".

The mother also said, according to the warrant, the night before  two women came to the house and brought pills to her son. She believed those pills were Xanax.

In their search of the property, officers found shell casings, marijuana, multiple firearms, money, and electronics.

It could have been a deadly encounter, but Lt. Quattlebaum is now out of the hospital recovering. Ferrell is being held in the Mecklenburg County jail on a 1 million dollar bond.
