Child Care Fight Leads To Fatal Lumberton Shooting

Investigators say a Lumberton teen shot and killed a 28-year-old man after he argued with his ex-girlfriend over who should take care of their child.

Authorities said Brandon Sampson was shot in the neck Friday as he was driving away from his ex-girlfriend's home in Robeson County.

Deputies say the 17-year-old suspect fired the shot after he pulled into the yard of the home in a truck. Investigators didn't want to talk about the relationship between the teen and Sampson's ex-girlfriend.

The teen is charged as an adult with first-degree murder and is being held in the Robeson County jail. It wasn't known if he has a lawyer.
