Officers were responding to reports of gunshots heard in the area around 2:15 a.m., when they found Legg lying on the ground with gunshot wounds.

He was pronounced deceased at the scene, which is near Brightleaf Square.

The owner of a nearby restaurant told CBS North Carolina that he saw two people fighting right where he says the victim was found dead.

Also, a bartender who works nearby said heard gunfire.

“It was a little after 2 (a.m.) and I had just started counting the drawer and heard a gunshot and when I looked out the window I saw a male running down the street. A few minutes later there were cop cars everywhere and police all over the place,” said Amy Fitzwater, who works at the Federal.
