HAVELOCK, N.C. (AP) - Authorities have arrested a man in connection with a shooting death at a Havelock motel.

Police in Havelock told local media outlets that James Walter Godette of Morehead City was visiting a friend at the Havelock Inn & Suites Tuesday.

Officers responding to a 911 call at the motel found Godette in the parking lot with multiple gunshot wounds. Police say he died at the scene.

Havelock police arrested 34-year-old Tornez Larenza Hargett of New Bern and charged him with felony murder. Hargett is being held in the Craven County jail, and online records didn’t indicate whether he had an attorney.

Hargett was scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.
