ROLESVILLE, N.C. (WTVD) -- The Rolesville Police Department is investigating after a Wake Forest man was shot and killed early Sunday morning.

Wesley Collin Carpenter, 27, was taken to WakeMed where he died.

Sunday afternoon police arrested 29-year-old James Michael Aaron and charged him with murder.

The Rolesville police chief said in a press release that "there are no known threats to the community and this is being investigated as an isolated incident."
