POLICE: Enfield man killed while eating dinner

ENFIELD, N.C. (WITN) – An elderly man who had just sat down for dinner was shot and killed at an Enfield apartment complex last night.

Enfield police say 81-year-old William Nevel was found dead on his sofa at Carriage House Apartments on Carriage House Lane.

Police said the back of the building was “riddled with bullets”. One of the bullets went through the wall and hit Nevel.

A second victim, Eric Davis, was hit by one of the rounds while he was standing in front of the apartment complex. The two men did not know each other, and police say Davis was treated and released from the hospital.
