MIDDLESEX — Editor's note: A previous version of this story erroneously said that two men had died in the incident.
A Johnston County man was charged early Sunday in what sheriff's deputies said was a homicide on the road where he lives.
Jerome Bernard Neal, 29, who lives on Barnes Lake Road in Middlesex, faces a murder charge in the death of Darrick Hagans, 18, and is also charged with shooting Kwami Jones, 19, on Saturday night.
Both of the men who were shot were from Spring Hope, officials said.
Deputies found Hagans and Jones after being called about a shooting on Lake Barnes Road.
Hagans was declared dead at the scene, sheriffs spokeswoman Tammy Amaon said Monday.
Jones was treated and released at WakeMed Hospital in Raleigh.
Neal is also charged with possession of a firearm by a felon and was being held without bail in the Johnston County Jail.
The possession charge stems from a 2006 conviction in Johnston County of possession of marijuana with intent to sell or deliver it.
Neal had been put on probation, but that was revoked and he served six months in prison before being released in July 2008, according to state prison records.
Neal already had three court dates in Johnston County this month and next on several traffic charges and misdemeanor marijuana possession, according to state court calendars.
