Could this be what you are talking about ?

LENOIR (WJRI) Authorities have released the identity of the person who was shot to death last week in Lenoir. 31-year-old Joseph Clark Young was killed Friday night. Deputies were responding to a trespassing call at a residence on Clarks Chapel Rd. when the call changed to a shooting. When officers arrived on the scene they found Young, Caldwell County EMS was called and pronounced him dead at the scene. The investigation has been given to the District Attorneys Office to decide on if charges will be filed. The investigation is continuing.

Yea and the owner of the mobile home is my best friend him and joe both were the nicest people anyone would want to meet,so I. Hope he gets what he deserves because he has really not only took my best friends brother but someone's husband,and daddy.there is cops to protect if needed,nobody should ever have to resort in such heartless crime,and then yell self defense,that's what your fist and a good ass whippin is for,only cowards resort to guns.so I guess he fits in that category.

Sometimes our anger and poor decisions leads to tragic situations as this. A renter does not have to be harrassed by their owners nor their families. So they can claim tresspassing.If this person felt threatned enough to call for police help for tresspassing then it sounds like he tried to prevent any violence. Something must have happened suddenly after that phone call for him to have shot him. Guns are not just for cowards they are for protection and sometimes people feel threatned enough to use them. There are two sides to this story. Wasn't their witnesses on the scene? The families are always left to deal with such tragic decisions.

Is this the same Joseph Young that has pending charges for copper theft in Caldwell County? If so, when did thiefs become described as fine outstanding citizens? Just the same, he didn't deserve to die if he wasn't being overly aggressive and the shooter didn't genuinely feel his life was in danger.

He must have felt threatened the audio tape when he called 911 he advised the person to stop fire a warning shot and then shot the person as he was being threatened so wait for all the story please!! None of you would let someone come into your home and do harm to you if you say you would you are lying !!

WTH were you trying to say? I don't even know how to reply to this because I haven't the slightest idea what anything you wrote means! I'm sensing anger (I think) so let me just say I'm sorry if I struck a nerve, however if this is the same guy who was stealing copper I would assume that would make his family pretty embarrassed. Not once did I say he deserved to die because he was caught taking something that didn't belong to him. I do believe in a person's right to defend themselves with whatever measure necessary though. Now let me go figure out where my badge is and try not to "but not" myself in the process=]

Run up on me at my home trying to break down the door threatening me and my family and I'll be glad to show you how it works. It doesn't matter if you're renting or own the place you can't do that anyone and expect not to get shot.

Looks like your not a real man, you are a coward.Real men know how to defend their families,they are not scared to face someone they know is unarmed and whoop their ass,especially when they've already been into it with the other person,Only if the other person has a weapon or out numbers them.Anyway for your info Thomas Reeves and Joe were friends,they had already been into it with each other that night.There was never no harm of Joe hurting him besides good old fashion fighting.HE was a chicken shit and shot him in the back of head,he wasn't even facing him plus it was through a window.Hey the next time someone comes to your house you don't care that much for ,wait till they turn around and shoot them from behind,...Its murder !!! Some people need to be careful everybody is a target now...Hurray for Justice

Were you there? Did you see it happen? You don't know what happened just some he said she said BS. It was investigated by the police and the evidence was turned over to the DA.
Where did you get your law degree at Skippy off a box of Cracker Jacks? When you go to someones home looking for trouble you don't always just get your "ass whooped". Call it "chicken shit" or whatever you want but you'll still be just as dead. If you're not smart enough to figure that out then maybe you'll be the next idiot we get to read about.

Ha Ha I'd rather be a "coward boy with a gun" than a wannabe badass boy with a bullet in his head any day of the week. Are you honestly so stupid that you think you can go to other peoples homes {where they live with their family) and jump on them and not get your brains blew out? Wake up Bubba the braindead redneck, life ain't no Steven Segal movie.
