— Police said Tuesday that no charges will be filed in the shooting death last month of a Hope Mills man.

Lamont Deshay Saffore, of Crenshaw Drive, was shot to death on March 24 at a home on Casper Drive in the Golf Acres subdivision, police said.

Brionte Jaquan Lloyd, 23, was questioned after the shooting, but police said that, based on the evidence and following a consultation with Cumberland County prosecutors, they wouldn't pursue a criminal case against him or anyone else.

    The cover up story in Sanford Florida is starting to fall apart as more info is made public.

    When its self-defense, why should charges EVER be filed?

    Again, sounds like Florida. When will the protests begin? Never, because there is no big story because both parties were African American. - kermit60

    Most likely, it's not a cover-up as like down there in Florida. I'd wager more eye-witnesses and competent police work.

    Kermit60, I know this appears unfair, however, we (the public) do not know the circumstances behind this. Also, both people, the deceased and the one questioned, are of the same ethnicity.
