Lincolnton woman shoots and kills illegal gun dealer

By  | 

LINCOLNTON, NC (AP) - North Carolina detectives say an effort to sell stolen guns left one of the dealers dead after a woman came out of hiding with her gun blazing.

Multiple media organizations reported Sunday that 51-year-old Marion Yarborough was found dead in the front yard of a Lincolnton home on Saturday afternoon. Lincoln County Sheriff's deputies say no charges have been filed and are calling it self-defense.

Officials say two men trying to sell guns stolen from Gastonia earlier Saturday entered the house. After an argument broke out, the men drew guns on a resident and forced him to the floor. That's when a woman came out of a back bedroom and shot at the gun dealers.

A man and a woman fled the scene in a vehicle.
