N.C. State Police Chief Daniel L. House said an argument broke out between Lee and 61-year-old Quinten Crawford, and Lee pulled out a gun and shot the man.

Police said Crawford was the father of Lee’s estranged girlfriend.

Lee was set to appear in court Thursday.

It’s unclear whether he has an attorney who can comment for him.
