Two police officers in a north-central North Carolina town are on paid leave as the State Bureau of Investigation reviews the shooting death of an African American man that occurred following a 911 call.
The police chief in Roxboro said David Brooks Jr. died following the officer-involved shooting on Friday morning.
Police Chief David Hess said officers responded to a call about a man wearing a mask and carrying what appeared to be a shotgun walking down U.S. Highway 158 near a discount retail store.
Investigators found a loaded sawed-off shotgun at the scene.
