LILLINGTON, N.C. — A man has been shot and killed in a drug raid and two North Carolina police officers have been placed on administrative duty during the investigation.

The Fayetteville Observer reported that Adrian Castaneda was shot to death during a drug raid in Lillington early Thursday.

Investigators say Harnett County sheriff’s detective Tommy Parker and special agent Michael Hall with the State Bureau of Investigation fired their weapons during the raid.

The SBI says putting the officers on administrative duty is typical in an officer-involved shooting.

Investigators say officers who went into a mobile home were confronted by two men with guns. Officers shot Castaneda, who died at the scene.

Parker has been with the sheriff’s office 14 years. Hall has been an SBI agent since 2005.
