According to police, witnesses said that Pugh was asked to leave the bar for allegedly being involved in a fight and later returned to the bar with a 40-caliber handgun and started firing.

North, a retired Marine, was attempting to lock the front door to prevent Pugh from entering the bar with the gun when the shooting started. North was hit four times in the chest and died on the floor of the bar as patrons attempted to revive him. Pugh was taken to Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and has recovered from his gunshot wound.

Flyers bar has subsequently closed its doors in Havelock since the time of the incident. A new business operates there now.

Pugh faces life in prison or the death penalty if found guilty.
