Bruce Wayne Staton 24 years old at the time was shot and killed at 541 N Daughtry St in Rocky Mount.

Around 5:40PM on January 29th, 2015 there was a knock on the front door of Staton's residence at 541 N Daughtry St in Rocky Mount. His mother answered the door and a man asked to see Bruce.

The mother said "JR there is someone here to see you" and she went back to her bedroom. Soon after she heard two shots and went back to the living room and found Bruce laying on the floor suffering from gunshot wounds.
