GOLDSBORO, NC (AP) — Authorities say one man was killed in a shootout with police during a drug raid in Goldsboro.

Investigators said Goldsboro Police and Wayne County deputies were serving a warrant on a home around 10 p.m. Friday when they were fired on.

Authorities say the officers fired back, killing one man and wounding another. Their names have not been released. None of the officers were hurt.

Investigators say 31-year-old Thomas Austin Jr. was arrested after the shootout and charged with five counts of attempted murder. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.

The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting.
