One suspect was killed and three others were arrested after breaking into an Onslow County home Sunday night.

The Onslow County Sheriff's Office responded to 145 Abbotts Branch Lane in reference to a burglary and gunshot victim.

When deputies arrived to the home, they identified the gunshot victim as Michael P. Holliday.

The sheriff's office said Holliday, Jordan Sanford, Brian Bailey and Jonathan Koncir conspired to break into the home on Abbotts Branch Lane. Bailey and Holliday entered the home and brandished a 20 gauge shotgun.

Authorities said Koncir, 22, and Sanford, 18, waited in a nearby getaway vehicle.

While inside the home, Bailey, 23, and Holliday, 21, pointed the shot gun at the home owner, John Moore, 50. They then demanded drugs and money from Moore. Authorities said that's when Moore pulled a .22 caliber pistol and demanded the two leave.

During the course of the robbery, Holliday was shot before fleeing with Bailey.

All four suspects left the home and began driving to a hospital when the vehicle collided with another vehicle on NC Highway 172 in Hubert, N.C.

Holliday was taken to the Naval Hospital aboard Camp Lejeune where he was later pronounced dead.

The remaining suspects are charged with first-degree burglary, attempted robbery with a dangerous weapon and conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Bailey, Koncir and Sanford were each given a $200,000 bond.
