NC: Gunfight during Mebane Home Invasion, 1 victim Killed, 1 Suspect Wounded

Shortly before 1 a.m., deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office were called to a reported home invasion in Mebane. Once they arrived, deputies found two people inside the home, as well as a victim suffering from a gunshot wound.

Deputies and emergency medical personnel rendered aid and transported the victim — identified as Jerry Lee Driggers, 58 — to Duke University Hospital where he died while in surgery. The other residents at the home told deputies they were held at gunpoint, but were not physically harmed.

According to the sheriff’s office, the preliminary investigation revealed Driggers fired a shotgun at three alleged intruders, who were reportedly armed as well. One of those individuals was struck, deputies determined. They also allege that someone in the group returned fire, hitting Driggers.
