SHELBY, N.C. (AP) - Authorities in Cleveland County say a suspect has been arrested in a fatal shooting at a home in Shelby.

The Cleveland County Sheriff’s Office told local media outlets Friday that 24-year-old Jonathan Wray of Lawndale was taken into custody and charged in the death of Christopher O’Neal Odoms.

Wray’s status wasn’t immediately available on Friday.

According to the sheriff’s office, deputies responded to a call just after 1:30 a.m. When they arrived, deputies found Odoms lying on the ground with gunshot wounds to the chest. He was taken to Carolinas Health Care Cleveland, where he was pronounced dead.

The latest shooting death was the second in the county this week, and Sheriff Alan Norman said they are the first in the county in 16 months.
