89-Year-Old Man Kills Wake Forest Neighbor

Wake County deputies say they are talking to an 89-year-old man who shot and killed his neighbor in Wake Forest.

Investigators said 47-year-old Jeffrey Mitchell was killed around 6:30 p.m. Saturday on the shooter's porch in a subdivision.

Authorities say the man who killed Mitchell is being questioned, but no charges have been filed. Investigators are also talking to witnesses about what led to the shooting.

Sheriff Donnie Harrison says Mitchell lived several houses away from where he was shot. The sheriff says the men knew each other, but he didn't know how well they were acquainted.
