UPDATE - Hunter Killed On Game Lands


Capt. Jeff Johnson said that it was likely that whoever shot Devitto knew what he or she was shooting at and that the shooting was not an accident.

Johnson also said that, based on investigators' work so far, it appeared Devitto had also gotten into some kind of confrontation with another hunter.

Investigators are treating the case as a homicide and are asking for the public's help to solve the case.

Friends found Devitto's red Chevrolet pickup truck parked outside the game lands Tuesday night when he never returned home. A short time later, just after 8 p.m., they found him on the ground with a gunshot wound by a single buckshot round to his face and chest.
Devitto, who is also a soldier at Fort Bragg, was on life support and died just after 1p.m. Friday.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 919-775-5531 or leave an anonymous tip at 919-718-4577. A cash reward is offered for information leading to an arrest in the case.
