Wayne County Fatal Shooting, No Charges Filed Yet

No one's been charged yet in the shooting death of a 32 year old in Wayne County, even though authorities say he was allegedly killed by a family member.

According to the Wayne County Sheriff's Office, Michael Womble shot and killed his brother Brian Womble Saturday night after a series of incidents throughout the day on Goodnight Street in Pikeville. Authorities tell us, Michael Womble was trying to prevent Brian Womble from hitting people with a stick.

Brian Womble has a lengthy criminal history. The case has been sent over to the District Attorney's Office.

    I knew both of them very well, and i'm amazed that they made it this far along in life. They are good people but very wild. Brian had a short fuse and i'm sure that mike did what he had to do to control the situation.

    I am glad to see that NC people are taking matters into their own hands. I am truly SADDEN about the prison system. Inmates and rights...(I am not kidding YOU).You know what...he won't hit nobody else. He (the deceased) must've been a problem if he made news out of PIKEVILLE. Good job, brother!

    Can you even begin to image what kind of turmoil this brother has to live with the rest of his life? Yes, he did save innocent people from being battered, but this was his brother. No matter the relationship, it's still going to haunt him for a very long time. God bless you.

    I still can't believe this. I went to school with both of them and would have never thought anything like this could or would have happened. Prayers to the family it has to be a hard thing to go through especially in this tragic way.

    If Brian Womble was idiot enough to be out hitting people with a stick, he got exactly what he deserved, whether it was by his brother or someone else.
