BOLTON, NC (WECT) - A man from Bolton is dead after a late night shooting at a club, according to police.

They say Odell Hampton was at The Hideaway when he and his relative Jerry Moore, Jr. started arguing. The night ended when authorities say Moore shot Hampton several times, killing him.

The family gathered Saturday to remember Hampton, who was 24 years old and leaves behind a 2-year-old son.

"He was always a respectful son," said Hampton's father, Sam.

This is believed to be the first murder in Bolton in nearly a decade.
