    The suspect in a fatal cop shooting in North Carolina has been arrested in Rhode Island. 

    Irving Lucien Fenner Jr. was arrested on Tiogue Avenue in Coventry overnight Tuesday. 

    He was hospitalized with a gunshot injury he originally sustained from the encounter with Officer Tim Brackeen over the weekend in Shelby, North Carolina. 

    Police say Brackeen was looking for Fenner, who apparently missed a court date related to a weapons charge, according to necn affiliate WJAR.
