A homicide is under investigation after a woman was found dead inside a home north of Claremont in Catawba County.
Investigators told Channel 9′s Dave Faherty that they responded to an incident along Deal Road.
Deputies said the suspect confronted them with a handgun before returning to the home.
When they learned a woman was possibly injured inside, the SWAT team made immediate entry and took the victim’s boyfriend into custody.
“We learned there was a likelihood of a person inside being seriously injured or deceased. Our special tactic and response team made an immediate entry,” said Major Aaron Turk.
Deputies said they are investigating this case as a domestic-related homicide.
Charges are pending against the suspect, who was taken to the hospital with minor injuries.
