KINSTON, N.C. (AP) — Police in North Carolina say former North Carolina State basketball star Charles Shackleford has been found dead in his home. He was 50.

Kinston police spokesman Woody Spencer said Shackleford’s body was found there Friday. The cause of death hasn’t been determined and an investigation is underway. Spencer didn’t say what circumstances led authorities to the home.
