Hill stopped the car in front of 1002 Temples Point Road, and he and two occupants fled into the woods, Cyrus said. Havelock police chased the men on foot and Macroberts was able to catch Norris.

Craven County Sheriff’s deputies and Havelock police searched a wooded off Temples Point Road, but with darkness setting in, could not locate the other two men on Wednesday night.

Cyrus said a semi-automatic handgun was retrieved from Temples Point Road.

“It was in the car under the seat that Norris was sitting in when he fled the scene,” Cyrus said.

Cyrus said the alleged robbery victim saw a gun in Norris’ hand but he was never threatened with it.

Cyrus said it wasn’t clear if the weapon found in the vehicle was the same one used to shoot Berry. That weapon was never recovered.

“We can’t say for sure. It would be speculation at this point,” Cyrus said.
