The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation said Monday that its agents have been asked to look into a fatal shooting involving an off-duty sheriff's deputy that sparked a local protest. A news release says Fayetteville police Chief Gina Hawkins and the Cumberland County district attorney asked the NCSBI to conduct the investigation into the Saturday shooting. A news release from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Jeffrey Hash has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. The Fayetteville Police Department says a preliminary investigation determined that 37-year-old Jason Walker "ran into traffic and jumped on a moving vehicle." Walker was pronounced dead at the scene. A group of protesters gathered outside police headquarters Sunday disputed the department's account. Black Lives Matter protesters chanting Walker's name marched to the Fayetteville transit center on Monday night.

An 18-year-old man wanted in the fatal shooting of a 62-year-old woman during a home invasion in Pennsauken was apprehended in Newark on Wednesday, authorities said.

Joshua Johnson, of Camden, has been charged with murder and related offenses in the slaying of Darlene Randall. He is being held at the Camden County jail pending a court appearance.

Just after 1:50 a.m. Sunday, police responded to reports of a home invasion in the 3700 block of Herbert Avenue and found Randall with a gunshot wound.

Randall was taken to Jefferson Cherry Hill Hospital and pronounced dead just before 2:30 a.m.

Authorities provided no other details late Wednesday night.

Neighbors at the Sycamore Ridge apartments told CBS3 that Randall was a well-liked grandmother.
