An 18-year-old high school student retaliating after being kicked out of a local bar returned with a pistol early Sunday morning and killed the head bouncer [and former Marine] and injured five patrons in a spray of gunfire and bullet fragments, investigators said.Link
Jonathan Richard Pugh, 18, of Havelock, faces an open count of murder in connection with the shooting death of Todd North, 39, of Havelock, both Acting Havelock Police Chief David Bratton and District Attorney Scott Thomas said at a Sunday afternoon press conference.
Thomas said the investigation shows that “Pugh got into a fight, and he and one man with him were escorted by North and another bouncer into the parking lot where some additional words were exchanged.”
“He apparently calmed down and left the parking lot in a car, but shortly afterward came back, walked to the door and started firing,” the district attorney said. “North fired back, attempting to keep Pugh from entering the bar, but was shot three or four times. His body will undergo an autopsy on Monday.”
