WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - The Bladen County Sheriff’s Office said Christopher Clibbons was found dead from a gunshot wound at a home in Kelly.

The incident happened around 10:30 p.m. Thursday at 1763 Lightwood Knot Road.

The Sheriff’s Office received a call after Clibbons’ children ran to a neighbor and told them that their father was shot. Another call came in about a possible kidnapping. Demecus Devone McMillan has been arrested and charged with one county of murder and one count of kidnapping.

According to officials, McMillan is accused of shooting Clibbons at his home and kidnapping Tasheena Shandelle McMillan, his estranged wife, and dropping her off in Pender County.

Wallace Police later found McMilland at his home and Tasheena McMillan was found safe at her home in Pender County. She later implicated McMillan in the shooting on Clibbons.

McMillan made his first court appearance Friday morning where a judge denied him bond.

Authorities say this is a domestic related incident.

The investigation is ongoing.
