A man has been charged in connection to a shooting in North Carolina that left three people dead.
Around 7 p.m. on Nov. 26, deputies from the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office responded to a home in Lumberton, North Carolina, for a shooting. When deputies arrived, they found Ryan F. Locklear, 24, and Treyvon Mitchell, 20, dead.
While at the home, deputies learned that a third victim was possibly shot in the arm, according to the sheriff’s office.
Police started to contact medical centers, then 911 dispatchers got a call about a body being found at a different location. Deputies went to that area and found the third person, but they were dead. That victim was identified as Da’Vern Inman, 20.
Dekota Ray Locklear, 23, was identified as the suspect and arrested. Investigators did not disclose a possible motive in the shooting.
Locklear was charged with three counts of first-degree murder, two counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, discharging a weapon in a vehicle to incite fear and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Locklear is being held in the Robeson County Detention Center without bond.
