PEMBROKE — Three gunmen fired several shots at a former Robeson County sheriff’s detective early Christmas Day after forcing their way into his home, according to sheriff’s Maj. Howard Branch.
The men forced their way into Ricky Locklear’s home on the 700 block of Eddie Road in Pembroke at about 1 a.m., according to Branch.
Branch said Locklear’s mother, who lives at the home, answered a knock at the door and the men forced their way inside. Once inside the men fired several shots as Locklear and his mother fled, Branch said. No one was injured in the shooting, according to Branch.
Branch said no arrests have been made.
Locklear left the Sheriff’s Office about 15 years ago and now works as an investigator for a Lumberton law firm.
