BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Shooting at home of State Senator RC Soles

Video

Body

State and local authorities are on the scene of a shooting at the home of State Senator RC Soles. Officials say Soles was the shooter, but has not been arrested.

Sources say the shooting took place earlier this evening at Soles home on Canal St. in Tabor City. The victim, 22-year-old Kyle Blackburn, was shot in the leg and is hospitalized in fair condition. Blackburn is a law client of Senator Soles. He served 1 year, 8 months for felony breaking and entering, and was released in June of 2008.

Authorities say another client, BJ Wright, was with Blackburn at the time of the shooting, as well as Wright’s girlfriend. Wright was released from prison couple weeks ago. WWAY reported last week that Senator Soles gave BJ Wright at least $8,000 while Wright was incarcerated.

Soles is the longest serving member of the North Carolina Legislature.

WWAY has a crew at the scene, and will have updates online and on television as information comes into our newsroom.
