— A man charged in a 2014 shooting death at a Raleigh pool hall has pleaded guilty to murder.

Dudley Lamar Kee pleaded guilty in Wake County Superior Court on Tuesday to second-degree murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. He is scheduled to be sentenced Wednesday.

Kee and another man, James Keith Nelson, were each charged with murder in the death of 26-year-old Marcus Rashad Owens, who was shot Feb. 18, 2014, at Bar and Billiards on South Saunders Street. Owens died from his injuries several days later.

Investigators said Owens was shot following a verbal altercation.

    That doesn't make sense. It's illegal for a convicted felon to be in possession of a firearm so how did this happen? If only we had more gun laws. They would have definitely prevented this criminal from carrying a gun and ultimately committing murder.

    Pfffffffffffft. Give me a break.
