911 calls released in Navassa shooting

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — We’re learning more about the aftermath of a deadly shooting that happened over the weekend.

Cordell Stokes was killed early Sunday morning after he was shot at a party on Old Cedar Loop Road in Navassa.

After learning of his death, his family had a difficult time figuring out where exactly he’d been taken.

In a phone call to Brunswick County 911, a caller said, “I’m calling because my nephew was killed. He was shot tonight and we’re trying to locate him. We went to New Hanover County hospital which is where the ambulance said that they were taking him. The hospital people told us that he was not there. They took him to Brunswick County because he died in transition and we are at Novant Health and they said they don’t have him either so we’re trying to find out the location of where he’s at.”

Police are still searching for a suspect. Anyone with information should call Navassa Police or the Jacksonville State Bureau of Investigation.
