Suspect In Gas Station Shooting Makes First Court Appearance

Posted Updated
June Bullock
WARREN COUNTY, N.C. — A man accused of shooting and killing a man pumping gas outside a gas station could go free on bond if he can raise the money.

A Warren County judge set bond at $750,000 for Owen Leavitt, who was arrested Tuesday and charged with second-degree murder.

Authorities believe Leavitt shot June Bullock, 30, in the back Monday night at a Boyd's BP Station in Warren County. Bullock was able to go inside the store after being shot, but shortly died afterward.

Investigators said they believe the shooting was drug-related.

Leavitt was also appointed an attorney.
