— A Fayetteville-area man was found shot to death in his home Sunday morning, authorities said Monday.

Cumberland County deputies were called to 7418 Turnbull Road shortly before 11:30 a.m. because family members said they couldn't get James C. Stocks to answer the door, authorities said.

When deputies arrived, a family member forced entry into the home, and Stocks, 76, was found lying in a pool of blood on the living room floor. He had been shot several times.

No other information was released.
