Chadbourn police say man shot, killed would-be robber

CHADBOURN, NC (WECT) - One man is dead after a shooting in a home in Chadbourn.

According to police, two men broke into a house off North Wilkes St. around 1:30 a.m. Thursday.

Ronnie Graham, Jr. and his girlfriend had just left the home to go to Walmart, but their friend, Danny Washington, was still inside.

Police say Washington shot one of the suspects, 22-year-old Eddie Best, in the buttocks.  Best later died at the hospital.  Investigators believe a bullet may have struck an artery.

Police, along with the SBI, say they're investigating the crime as a first degree burglary and a self-defense case. Police are still looking for the other suspected robber.

No charges have been filed against Washington, but the information has been turned over to the District Attorney's office.
