Updated 7:28 p.m. Thursday 11/14/19





Benson, N.C. — A man was shot and killed overnight at a convenience store in Johnston County in what authorities say was part of a string of robberies in the area.


Two men wearing masks entered the Scotchman convenience store, at 12320 N.C. Highway 210 near the McGee’s Crossroads community, at about 1:30 a.m., authorities said.

Joseph Bowling, 23, was visiting his mother, who works at the store, and jumped between her and the armed robbers when they demanded her phone, according to his stepfather, Rex Bowling. After he was shot, Joseph Bowling chased the robbers out the door before he died, his stepfather said.
