Police say a man who forced his way into a mobile home Monday night was shot dead, while one of the victims was also wounded.
Goldsboro police say it happened around 8:30 p.m. at a mobile home park on West New Hope Road.
They say Kevin Hagans, who lived at the trailer with his seven-year-old son and another man, was wounded. He was taken to Wayne UNC Health Care for non-life threatening injuries.
The residents told police three people forced their way into the home and shot Hagans. Police say one of the residents fired back and trio ran from the home.
Officers say they found 40-year-old Ryan Allen in some nearby woods with a gunshot wound to the pelvis area. He later died in surgery at Vidant Medical Center.
Police say their investigation into the home invasion and subsequent shooting is ongoing.
