TABOR CITY, NC (WECT) - A shooting in Columbus County has turned fatal.

On May 13, 58-year-old Dale Buffkin was shot outside the Heart of Dixie convenience store on Highway 904 in Tabor City. Shortly afterwards, police arrested Buffkin's brother-in-law, 43-year-old Lawrence Dwayne Enzor, and charged him with the shooting.

Authorities say those charges will likely be upgraded to murder.

Buffkin died from his wounds over the weekend.

Police say the family has had a long simmering feud.
