Morganton Murder Arrest

Updated: Friday, December 14 2012, 07:09 AM EST

A shooting in Morganton leaves a McDowell County man dead and another behind bars. 36-year-old Corey Grant of Marion is charged with first degree murder in the death of Brian Burnette of Old Fort.

Police say Grant forced his way into a home on Bethel Street in Morganton Wednesday night then fired several rounds killing Burnette. Officers later found Grant walking along I-40 westbound and arrested him.

While officials say the shooting appears to be domestic related, they have not offered any other details about a motive.

He's being held in the Burke-Catawba Detention Center without bond.
