WINDSOR, N.C. (WNCT) — The Windsor Police Department has released the name of the person who was shot and killed Saturday night.

The NC State Bureau of Investigation is assisting with the investigation. No further details were released.
The shooting death is the sixth homicide in the county this year and the second on Saturday.
