A 14-year-old-boy was shot in Robbins on Hussey Road Friday afternoon and died on the way to the hospital. Justin Lewis Maness was shot outside of his home around 3:00 p.m.
A landing zone had been established at North Moore High School for the victim to be airlifted to an area trauma center, but the patient was taken to Moore Regional Hospital by ambulance instead.
“Deputies have completed their interviews with the two juveniles who were present at the scene when this shooting occurred,” said Sheriff Neil Godfrey. “The shooting was not a random shooting.”
Godfrey said Moore County District Attorney’s office will review the case with deputies Monday to determine if anyone will be charged in the investigation.
“We extend our condolences to the family and will keep them in our prayers during this very tragic time,” said Godfrey.
