The shooting death of a longtime North Carolina college employee will be investigated as a hate crime, police said Tuesday morning, just hours after the 20-year-old suspected gunman was arrested on a Florida beach.
Ronald Lane, 44, was shot and killed by 20-year-old Kenneth Stancil III inside of the print shop at Wayne Community College in Goldsboro, N.C., on Monday morning, police said during a Tuesday news conference.
Stancil, who had worked with Lane in the campus’ print shop as part of a work-study program, shot Lane once with a “pistol-grip shotgun” and then fled south on a motorcycle, Goldsboro Police Sgt. Jeremy Sutton told reporters Tuesday.
Sutton said Stancil entered the campus on a mission to kill Lane.
