— In a call to 911 Sunday afternoon a man told a dispatcher, “I just shot somebody in my house.”

Wake County sheriff's deputies responded 3 Kelly Pine Court in Wake Forest after the call to find Jaquelyn Larue Gore, 48, dead from a gunshot wound.

They arrested Leslie Edward Smith, 62, charging him with Gore’s murder. Smith said the two lived together at that address.
