GOLDSBORO, NC (WITN) - After years of continued investigation into a murder in the East, a man is now charged with shooting and killing a man back in 2013.

On January 24th, 2013, Goldsboro Police Department responded to a call about an unresponsive person on Seymour Drive in Goldsboro.

EMS found the victim, Shabazz Woods, dead on the scene. They say, he appeared to have died from apparent gunshot wounds and the case was ruled a homicide.

As a result of the continued investigation, police obtained a warrant for the arrest of Nebraska Best for murder in connection with the shooting.

Best was served the warrant Monday at the Bertie Correctional Institution, where he was already in custody for an unrelated case.
