2 shot, killed in Columbus County after argument

WHITEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say two men are dead after they shot one another during an argument in Columbus County.

A statement from the sheriff's office said deputies responded to a report of a shooting east of Tabor City Thursday morning. When the deputies arrived, they found James Bernard Soles with a gunshot wound to the chest.

The sheriff's office said Soles told deputies that he had been shot by his stepson, 16-year-old Gregory Javon McKinnies, who himself was shot multiple times by Soles.

Deputies found that McKinnies was taken to a hospital in Loris, S.C., where he was pronounced dead on arrival. Soles was also taken to the Loris hospital, where he died.

An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday in Raleigh.
