RAEFORD, N.C. — Authorities are investigating the shooting of a real estate agent that ended in a standoff Thursday afternoon.
The Hoke County Sheriff's Office said June McCoy called several real estate agents trying to get one of them to come to his mobile home on Glenlea Drive.
Finally, Kathleen Yaggi from a Fayetteville ReMax office agreed. When she arrived, investigators said McCoy shot her multiple times.
A public transportation employee spotted the woman in the yard in front of the suspect's mobile home, investigators said.
Officers said McCoy then barricaded himself inside his mobile home. Police used a non-deadly gas to get McCoy out of the home. When he did not come out, however, officers went in after him.
Authorities said McCoy had shot himself in the head with the same gun used to shoot Yaggi.
Yaggi is listed in critical condition at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. McCoy is also in the hospital. Hospital officials are not releasing information on his condition.
Deputies say Yaggi had tried to get some of her colleagues to go with her to McCoy's house, but all were busy. The manager of the Fayetteville Remax said she plans to make some procedural changes to keep agents safe.
