EDEN, N.C. (WGHP) — A man and a teen face multiple charges after a fatal shooting in Eden on Wednesday night, according to an Eden Police Department news release.

According to Eden police, they responded to the area of Morgan Road just after 9 p.m. about a disturbance. A lieutenant with the EPD was the first to arrive on the scene. Police say that the lieutenant heard arguing inside the home as he walked up.
