Sheriff’s Office: Suspect Acted In Self-Defense In Fatal La Grange Shooting

(GDN) — Authorities have arrested a suspect involved in a shooting death at a La Grange convenience store. 

The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office says deputies responded to the Stop N Go on the 100 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Drive Tuesday night for the report of a shooting.  The deputies arrived and found 27-year-old Terrence Outlaw Jr. of La Grange deceased from apparent gunshot wounds.  It is believed Outlaw and another subject got into an altercation inside the store and the fatal shooting followed. 

The second subject has been identified as Julius Graham of La Grange.  Graham surrendered to authorities on Wednesday afternoon.  The Lenoir County Sheriff’s Office states the investigation shows Graham was not the aggressor in this incident and acted in self-defense.  However, Graham was still arrested for Possession of a Firearm by a Felon and Obstruction of Justice.  Graham was jailed under a $40,000 secured bond.
