FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — One man is dead and another is accused of murder after a shooting on a busy Fayetteville Road Monday, which police say appears to be a case of road rage.
Officers arrested Roger Nobles, 51, and charged him with first-degree murder in the death of 32-year-old Stephen Addison, police said.
The arrest came following a “disturbance” police said led to Addison, a motorcyclist, being shot just after 12:30 Monday afternoon on Skibo Road, near the intersection with Cliffdale Road.
Following the shooting, crews transported Addison to the hospital, but he did not survive.
According to investigators, Nobles fled the scene, but officers were able to take him into custody later Monday.
Fayetteville police confirmed to CBS 17 that officers went to Auburn Street in Cumberland County – where they also confirmed Nobles lives – in connection with the case.
That’s where Shahara Chance, a neighbor, said she witnessed officers put a man in custody Monday afternoon.
“The police pulled their guns out, they said, ‘put your hands up, get on the ground,’” she told CBS 17’s Sean Cudahy. “It’s just scary. It really is.”
Nobles is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center without bond.
