LUMBERTON — A Lumberton man was shot and killed early Sunday on the front porch of a home on Hayes Street, according to police Capt. Johnny Barnes.
David Allen Hinson, Jr., 34, was shot once when 52-year-old Donald Forbus opened a door to find Hinson on his front porch, Barnes said.
Forbus told investigators that he heard noises outside of his home shortly after 5 a.m. and went to the door with his revolver in his hand. He told investigators that he was confronted by Hinson, shot him once, and then dialed 911.
Charges have not been filed against Forbus. The two men did not know each other, according to Barnes.
Hinson has previously faced charges for driving while impaired, simple assault and injury to real property.
The case remains under investigation.
