      Randy Lee Anderson

      Brunswick County Sheriff's Office investigators arrested Randy Lee Anderson, 24, of Wilmington in the shooting death of Michael James Link, 23, of Leland.

      Deputies say Anderson was making a drug deal with Link when they shot him.

      Around 1:15 a.m., officers responded to a shooting in the Deerwood Meadows mobile home park off of Mt. Misery Road in Leland. When they got there, they found Link dead just outside of the mobile home park.

      Leland police caught Anderson when they stopped a car they recognized from a witness description.

      In addition to the Murder charge, Anderson has also been charged with Possession of a Stolen Firearm, Possession with Intent to Manufacture, Sell or Distribute Marijuana, and Conspiracy to Sell/Deliver Marijuana.

      Anderson is being held at the Brunswick County Detention Facility with no bond.
