Norlina, N.C. — Warren County authorities on Tuesday were searching for a man wanted in connection with the shooting of his 15-year-old son and ex-wife.
According to Norlina Police Chief Taylor Bartholomew, Earl Valentine shot and killed his son early Tuesday morning after he kicked in the door to his ex-wife's home on Hyco Street. Valentine's ex-wife, Keisha Valentine, was critically injured.
Bartholomew said Earl Valentine recorded a video via Facebook live about the homicide. In the video, Valentine can be heard saying he has "no remorse" for the shootings, and that his wife "deserved what she had coming."
"I loved my wife, but she deserved what she had coming," he said. "I know a lot of y'all are going to be disappointed in me, but it was something that had to be done."
Authorities said a domestic protection order was in place but expired last month.
Bartholomew said he believes Earl Valentine may be in the Richmond area.
No additional information was immediately available.
