GRAHAM, N.C. (WTVD) -- Authorities in Graham are investigating a fatal shooting following a domestic disturbance between a boyfriend and girlfriend early Monday morning.

Around 3 a.m., Graham police were called to a home on Webster Road about a shooting.

When they arrived, they found 32-year-old Elijah Bryan Clinedinst dead from an apparent gunshot wound to his neck.

His girlfriend 22-year-old Ericka Lee Dark was also at the home.
