SELMA, N.C. — Investigators say a Johnston County man was shot to death in his home.

Authorities said 28-year-old David Stancil's family was concerned when they could not get in touch with him Monday night. A family member later went to Stancil's home on Revell Road, just off Highway 96, and found Stancil's body.

"It's just devastating. You just can't realize how stuff like this is until it actually hits home," said Tamekia Session, Stancil's sister-in-law.

"It's just a great loss. It feels like part of your life is gone," said Kisha Gathers, Stancil's sister-in-law.

Family members said Stancil was a kind man with a big heart.

"I can call him anytime. He would give me advice. I could just talk to him about anything," said Dida Sorles, Stancil's sister.

"I can't think of an enemy he has, and if he had one, I don't think he knew about it," said Tiffany Staton, Stancil's sister-in-law.

At 3:30 a.m. Tuesday, a flatbed truck towed a white GMC Denali from the residence.Investigators say towing a vehicle is common when looking for evidence.

Anyone with any information about the case is asked to contact authorities.
