Bostrom was later identified as the officer who was shot.
The Charlotte-mecklenberg Police Department released a statement that said Bostom was shot while in custody and died.
Charlotte-Meccania Police Chief Tim Moore told the Charlotte Observer newspaper that Bostoms death is under investigation.
Moore said Boprom was a partner at the police department, but the department did not release a reason for his termination.
He also did not provide further details about the incident.
