Victims identified, suspect arrested in deadly Craven County mobile home park shooting

Paris Monet King (Craven County Sheriff's Office)

One person is dead. Another is in the hospital. A suspect is in custody. The shooter is still on the loose.

In a story you could only find on NewsChannel 12 Monday morning, three people involved in a deadly shooting at Gracie Farms Mobile Home Park in New Bern are now identified.

Craven County officials confirm they've arrested 25-year-old Paris Monet King. King is now in the Craven County Detention Center on a $1.5 million bond and is facing a variety of felony drug charges, including possession of heroin, cocaine and fentanyl.

However, King is not charged in the murder of 25-year-old Corinna Cox, of New Bern, or in the shooting of 26-year-old Carlo Lacomb.

Lacomb, originally from New York, was wounded in the shooting at the mobile home park late Sunday night.

He is currently being treated at Vidant Medical Center in Greenville and is expected to survive. Authorities are still looking for the shooter in this case and King is said to be cooperating with investigators.

All of this stems from a shots fired call the Craven County Sheriff's Office department got around 10:50 Sunday night. While the investigation for that call was just underway, a second shots fired call came in to the department.

Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes said the department has strong leads it is following in the hunt for the suspect. He did say that drugs were a factor in the case.
