CLEVELAND COUNTY, N.C. - Cleveland County deputies said one person was killed Monday morning.
The incident happened on Baker Drive in Shelby. Officials said two people were shot and a man, Roger Dale Sisk, died.
Deputies said when officers arrived at the house, Schuylar Mark Camp started firing. Officers fired back and injured Camp.
“I just don't understand this. I don't understand it,” said Richard Russ, Sisk's nephew.
Russ can’t believe his uncle is dead and he is angry at Camp, who was charged with murder.
"I don't understand how he got mixed up with this guy. I just don't," Russ said.
Camp and Sisk used to live together until few months ago, when Camp moved in with his girlfriend in Shelby.
She broke up with him Sunday night and Camp got very angry.
He reportedly made threats, saying he was going to come back and somebody was going to die.
She called deputies and they took that threat very seriously.
“He is no stranger to the criminal justice system," Cleveland County Sheriff Alan Norman said.
In 1991, Camp was convicted of second-degree murder for killing his sister.
He was released from prison three years ago.
Detectives said after Camp left his girlfriend's house, he returned to where he used to live and killed Sisk.
Officers called his cellphone to ask about the fight with his girlfriend and they say he confessed to the murder.
Officers said Camp fired at them when they arrived at the apartment.
They fired back, hitting him in the arm.
"From my perspective, the officers that arrived on the scene last night probably saved other individuals' lives because I think this individual was not going to stop here last night," Norman said.
The sheriff has launched as internal investigation to make sure his officers followed procedure.
Camp is at Carolinas Medical Center.
When he is released, he will be arrested for first-degree murder and three counts of assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill.
