SHELBY, N.C. (AP) — Investigators say a woman has been shot to death outside an apartment complex in Shelby.

Police say the woman was found wounded in the parking lot of the apartments around 1 a.m. Saturday and died a short time later at the hospital. Her name has not been released.

Authorities arrested 20-year-old Steven Morris and charged him with possession of a firearm by felon, possession of a stolen firearm, and resist, obstruct and delay. Police Capt. Rick Stafford says Morris was involved with the woman’s death, but investigators are still trying to determine exactly what happened.

Morris is being held at the Cleveland County jail without bond. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
