Man dead, second man charged in shooting near Sanford

SANFORD, N.C. (AP) — One man is dead and a second faces a murder charge following a shooting outside of Sanford in Lee County.

Sheriff Tracy Carter tells local news outlets that deputies were called to a home just west of Sanford about 2 p.m. Monday after a report of a shooting.

Carter says Cody Lee Wilder, who lived at the home, was found dead with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Deputies have charged 34-year-old Jason Vann Wayne Godfrey, who also lives at the residence with murder. The sheriff says the shooting happened after the men got into a fight.

It was not immediately known if Godfrey had an attorney.
