— A Brunswick County deputy responding to a domestic violence call shot and killed a 49-year-old man, Sheriff John Ingram said.

Ingram told the Star-News of Wilmington that Alton Walters was shot Sunday night at his home in Supply by officer Bradley Hardee.

Ingram did not release any more details and said the case has been turned over to the State Bureau of Investigation.

Walters' father said his son was a landscaper who lived at the home with his girlfriend. He said he is frustrated because investigators aren't telling his family anything.

According to state Department of Correction records, Walters was on probation for various traffic violations. DOC records show that he was convicted in 2000 on three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child.
