GOLDSBORO, N.C. - Police say they are investigating the fatal shooting of a North Carolina community college worker as a possible hate crime.

Goldsboro police Sgt. Jeremy Sutton refused to say Tuesday what hate crime was being investigated. Brent Hood, who was the supervisor of shooting victim Ron Lane, says his employee was gay.

Police say 20-year-old Kenneth Morgan Stancil III entered a campus print shop where he used to work in a work-study program and fired once with a pistol-grip shotgun, killing Lane, his former supervisor.

The shooting happened Monday morning. Police say Stancil fled and was eventually captured early Tuesday on a beach in Florida.

School officials say Stancil was dismissed from the school's work-study program for too many absences.
