A Leland police officer involved in a shooting at a traffic checkpoint last month has resigned, Leland Town Manager David Hollis said Sunday, July 8.

Anthony Bernard, along with four Brunswick County sheriff's deputies and three deputies with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office, was involved in the shooting.

Law enforcement officers shot two Leland men as they tried to flee from the checkpoint on U.S. 17 in Leland, which was being conducted under a multi-agency Governors Highway Safety Booze It and Lose It program.
