A 21-year-old man is dead after a shooting at a community center early Sunday morning.
Duplin County Sheriff Blake Wallace says Nicholas Bennerman was shot at the Duff Creek Community Building outside of Teachey. The man died later at New Hanover Regional Medical Center.
Wallace says his deputies were there within minutes of the first call, which came in around 2:00 a.m. Sunday. The sheriff says the murder stemmed from an argument at a private party being held at the community center. He says there are multiple people of interest in the murder.
