Man arrested for allegedly shooting, killing teen

SANFORD, NC The shooting happened around 8 p.m. Tuesday at a home on Magnolia Street.

Authorities say 15-year-old Larod McKoy was shot in the head and then taken to the hospital in a private vehicle. The teen later died at Central Carolina Hospital.

Detectives say the incident apparently stemmed from an argument two days before involving two groups of young men that escalated into Tuesday night's shooting.

They haven't said if McKoy was armed, the intended target, or even just an innocent bystander.

Following his death, authorities arrested 24-year-old Le'Quan Jackie Gill and charged him with murder.

He is currently in the Lee County Jail without bond.
