— A Fort Bragg soldier has turned himself in to authorities to face charges in the shooting death of a retired sergeant major last month.

Fayetteville police spokesman Gavin MacRoberts said Friday that Staff Sgt. Clyde Terrell Cobb, 41, turned himself in on Thursday. He is charged with voluntary manslaughter in the shooting of retired Command Sgt. Maj. Raymond Thompson.

Thompson, 56, was found dead in a car at the Reserve at Carrington Place apartments on Sept. 9.

Police say Cobb also was shot during the confrontation and was treated and released from Cape Fear Valley Medical Center.

Cobb is stationed with the 112th Signal Brigade. It's not clear if he has an attorney.
