LUMBERTON, N.C. (WBTW) — Lumberton police have arrested a man after they say he shot and killed his 24-year-old girlfriend.

Around 4:45 a.m. on June 11, officers were sent to the Econo Lodge at 2320 Capuano Road for calls of person being shot.

When they arrived, Fredrik Cain, 24, was holding his abdomen outside of a room and told officers his girlfriend, Kimberly Smith, was inside and had been shot, according to police.

Cain and Smith were both transported to the hospital to be treated for their injuries, according to police. Smith was transferred to a different hospital where she later died.
