One person dead in shooting at Lenoir County store

LA GRANGE, N.C. (WITN) – Multiple agencies are investigating a deadly shooting at a store in La Grange.

Major Ryan Dawson with the Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office says it happened at the Stop N Go at 109 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive around 9:00 p.m.

Once deputies arrived, they found a man dead from gunshot wounds. He was identified as Terrence Outlaw, Jr., 27, of La Grange.

Dawson says they believe the shooting stemmed from an argument between Outlaw and another person.

“This does not appear to be a random act of violence, but rather two persons who had an unknown problem with each other,” said Lenoir County Sheriff Ronnie Ingram in a statement early Wednesday. “We do not believe there is any public danger at this time.”

Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office and the NC State Bureau of Investigation are still working to identify a suspect.

If you have any information, you are asked to call LCSO at 252-559-6118 or Kinston-Lenoir County Crime-Stoppers at 252-523-4444.
