Civil rights group to head to eastern NC to get answers in teen's death

Updated:

CHADBURN, N.C. - A civil rights group will travel to eastern North Carolina on behalf of a Charlotte teenager who was killed there in 2011.

They want answers about Jasmine Thar’s death.

She was visiting family in Chadburn when investigators said she was shot and killed when a neighbor’s rifle accidentally went off.

But some believe the shooting was on purpose.

They want to see the report on the shooting and are upset they haven’t received it yet.
