— Deputies charged a man with murder in a double shooting outside a bar in Edgecombe County Saturday night.

At least three people got into an altercation in the parking lot of the Hogs Pen Pub, 514 S. Fountain Road in Macclesfield, around midnight, Sheriff James L. Knight said in a press release. Investigators do not know what sparked the altercation.

Gunshots were fired during the fight, injuring two people.

One victim was shot in the back of the head, Knight said. He was transported to Heritage Hospital in Tarboro but died of his injuries.

The second victim suffered a gunshot wound to the upper torso. The victim was taken to Pitt Memorial Hospital in Greenville.

Both victims' names were withheld, pending notification of next of kin.

The suspected shooter, Bobby Ray Bordeaux, 37, of Third Street in Macclesfield, fled the scene on foot, Knight said. Deputies apprehended him in a wooded area behind the Hogs Pen around 1:30 a.m.

Bordeaux was charged with first-degree murder and assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury with intent to kill. He was being held in the Edgecombe County Detention Center without bond on Sunday morning.

    Just a shame.

    What many people do not know is that this man is a very generous, caring, and loving when he is not under the influence. Unfortunately, alcohol distorts our personality. He was truly way past under the influence of alcohol to the point he has no idea what happen or how it happen. My prayer is that this will be a testimony to those who abuse alcohol for it can truly change a person's destiny and can destroy lives unintentionally.
