CLEVELAND COUNTY, N.C. - A man linked to a Cleveland County man's death is no longer facing murder charges.
Prosecutors now said evidence points to self-defense.
Earlier this month, officers found Kevin Lee Cole dead at Matthew Moore's home on Mooresboro Road, but they believe Cole pulled a gun on Moore and shot at him.
Investigators now said there was a struggle over the gun and then Moore fatally shot Cole.
