FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A motorcyclist was shot and killed in what’s being described as a road rage incident, a North Carolina police department said Monday.
A news release from the Fayetteville Police Department says officers sent to a location in the center of the city at around 12:31 p.m. Monday found that an unidentified man riding a motorcycle had been shot.
The preliminary investigation showed that the driver of a truck was involved in an apparent argument with the motorcyclist before the man was shot, police said. The victim was taken to a local hospital, where he died from his wounds.
Monday evening, Nexstar affiliate WNCN reported Stephen Addison, 35, later died at the hospital. Roger Nobles, 51, was charged with first-degree murder.
An investigation into the shooting is underway, police said.
