4 found fatally shot after fire, possible explosion


LENOIR, N.C. (AP) — Four people were found fatally shot at a Lenoir home after a fire and possible explosion, officials said.
News outlets report that police and firefighters were called to the home and found a large fire. The damage may have been caused by “some sort of explosion,” Lenoir Fire Chief Kenneth Hair said.
Officials later found the bodies of two men, ages 29 and 58, an 18-year-old woman and a 15-year-old girl.

All four victims appear to have died of gunshot wounds, police said.
The incident does not appear to be random, and no suspects are being sought, police said.
Lenoir fire and police officials and the State Bureau of Investigations continue to investigate the incident.
