BESSEMER CITY, N.C. (AP) — Investigators say a man has been shot and killed as he mowed his lawn in Gaston County.

Police say they were called to the Bessemer City home around 7:30 a.m. Wednesday and found a body beside an old lawn mower in the freshly cut grass.

Investigators think the killing is part of a family dispute. They say they have someone they want to talk to, but haven’t made any arrests. A vehicle drove down the dirt road leading to the home just before the shooting.

The name of the victim also has not been released.
