Deputy Involved In Shooting Back On The Job

The Pitt County deputy involved in a fatal shooting last week is back on the job.

Deputy Zachary Odom shot and killed 19 year-old Antonio Lacy when Lacy was trying to rob the deputy at gunpoint at an ATM.

Sheriff Mac Manning says Odom is fresh out of the academy, and has been with his department since August, but said the shooting was totally justified.

The SBI is investigating the shooting, which is standard procedure when a law enforcement officer is involved in a shooting.
