A 35-year-old Havelock man has been identified as the person shot and killed in a home invasion Saturday.
Pamlico County Sheriff’s deputies responded to reports of a home invasion at 3057 Trent Road around 3 a.m. Upon arrival, investigators found Moses Ellis Tolvert III, who was pronounced dead at the scene by emergency personnel, according to a release issued by Sheriff Chris Davis. 
Investigators with the sheriff’s office and State Bureau of Investigation conducted interviews and collected evidence over the weekend. Based on information obtained, it was determined that three individuals wearing masks entered the residence brandishing a weapon and demanding money and drugs.
During the exchange, one of the homeowners shot an intruder, resulting in Tolvert’s death. The other suspects left on foot in a 2012-2015 model year, dark blue Chrysler 200 that was seen leaving the area.
Tolvert was no stranger to drug or firearm charges. 
On May 20, Tolvert was arrested and charged with assault by pointing a gun, possession of a firearm by a felon, and robbery with a firearm or dangerous weapon, according to a report in the Havelock News.
In an article dated May 26, the victim of that crime reported to the Havelock Police Department that Tolvert had put a gun to his head and demanded money for a $20 marijuana debt.
Tolvert had several pending court cases in Craven County, including those charges, plus misdemeanor assault on a female, felony possession with intent to sell marijuana and misdemeanor possession of marijuana, records state.
He also had prior convictions for felony second-degree burglary and felony possession of marijuana with intent to sell, according to records from the N.C. Department of Corrections.
The Sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate the incident. Anyone with information about the home invasion is asked to call 745-3101. A reward for information resulting in the arrest of the two suspects still at large is being offered.
