KINSTON, Lenoir County - In the wake of last week's double homicide in Kinston, community officials came together to offer support for those affected by the slayings.

Counselors and other grief professionals were at Rochelle Middle School Tuesday afternoon to be a resource to those impacted by the deadly shooting at the public housing complex on Mitchell Wooten Court last Wednesday.

Donald Girtley, Jr., an 18-year-old father and resident of Goldsboro and 23-year-old Kinston resident Demone Nesbitt were killed in the shootings. Kinston Police have arrested a 15-year-old male and charged him with murder in the deaths of Girtley and Nesbitt.

Tuesday's event began at 4:30 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
