MACON Co., NC (WSPA) – One person is dead after an officer-involved shooting in Macon County.

The Macon County Sheriff’s Office said in a Facebook post early Monday that deputies responded to a dispute between neighbors at a home near Mashburn White Road.

The sheriff’s office says one of the neighbors in the dispute was armed with a gun and confronted the first deputy who arrived at the scene. “The deputy discharged his duty weapon and the suspect is deceased,” according to the post. 

The N.C. State Bureau of Investigation is reportedly on scene and investigating.

“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family of the deceased as well as to everyone involved in the incident especially the deputy who was protecting and serving his community tonight,” according to the post.

This is a developing story.
