FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — Fayetteville police have charged a man with first-degree murder, accusing him of shooting his neighbor in broad daylight Saturday.
The shooting happened about 11:20 a.m. at the College Arms apartments in the 4700 block of Republican Road near the Ramsey Street corridor, Fayetteville police said in a news release.
