HAVELOCK — Authorities say a 23-year-old man has been charged with murder in a shooting at a home in Havelock.

Police said Christopher Godette of Morehead City was arrested this weekend.

Investigators say Godette shot 45-year-old Gerald Price in his home Friday.

Police say neighbors called 911 after Price stumbled out of his home and collapsed in the front yard. He died a short time later at the hospital.

Investigators say they think someone targeted Price, but they haven't given a motive for the killing.

Godette was being held without bond at the Craven County jail. It wasn't known if he had a lawyer.
