Followup NC: No Charges in Shooting of Larry Junious Graves
Terry, then 56, shot Graves, 64, after Graves forced his way into Terry’s house at 2002 Lower Hopedale Road, Burlington, early in the morning of July 24. The investigation by the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office and District Attorney’s Office found that Terry woke up that evening to hear his dog barking. He saw Graves — whom he didn’t know — parked in his driveway. Terry went outside with a flashlight, phone and gun.
Graves confronted Terry on his porch, calling him by someone else’s name and approaching the house. Terry told Graves he had the wrong man, warned that he was armed and told him to leave. Terry fired a warning shot into the ground as Graves approached. Terry tried to get a photo of Graves’ license plate with his phone, but Graves threw something at him and attacked him before running into Terry’s house.
