NORTH TOPSAIL BEACH, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a man has been charged with two counts of murder after a double shooting in a North Carolina beach town.

Local news outlets report a release from the North Topsail Beach Police Department says 28-year-old McKinsey Ray Britton was arrested Monday. The statement says officers responding to a 911 call were met by Britton, and that he told them he had shot two people inside the home. Officers found a man and a woman dead from apparent gunshot wounds inside the Onslow County home.

The victims' names were withheld while relatives were being notified.

It's unclear if Britton has a lawyer.
