Pembroke man shot, killed at sweet 16 party

Posted: Updated:

LUMBERTON, NC (WMBF) – A sweet 16 bash in Robeson County over the weekend left one young man from Pembroke dead, and authorities on the hunt for a suspect.

Major Howard Branch, spokesman for the Robeson County Sheriff's Office, says the shooting that killed 22-year-old Patrick Yancy Musselwhite of Pembroke was a result of an argument at a birthday party Saturday night.

Branch says Musselwhite arrived at the celebration with his girlfriend and three other individuals, and were heading toward their car to leave when the fight erupted. More than one shot was fired, but no one else was injured, Branch said.

Musselwhite's friends were the only partygoers still on the scene when police arrived.

Police have not yet released a suspect description and urge anyone with information about this incident to contact the Robeson County Sheriff's Office.
