The North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation said Monday that its agents have been asked to look into a fatal shooting involving an off-duty sheriff's deputy that sparked a local protest. A news release says Fayetteville police Chief Gina Hawkins and the Cumberland County district attorney asked the NCSBI to conduct the investigation into the Saturday shooting. A news release from the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office says Deputy Jeffrey Hash has been placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation. The Fayetteville Police Department says a preliminary investigation determined that 37-year-old Jason Walker "ran into traffic and jumped on a moving vehicle." Walker was pronounced dead at the scene. A group of protesters gathered outside police headquarters Sunday disputed the department's account. Black Lives Matter protesters chanting Walker's name marched to the Fayetteville transit center on Monday night.
