Detective Weatherly was shot and killed while attempting to serve a failure to appear warrant on a 19-year-old suspect charged with assault on a police officer. As officers approached the home the suspect opened fire with a shotgun from inside the residence and struck Detective Weatherly in the face.

The suspect was later arrested and charged with first degree murder. He was found incompetent to stand trial and committed to the Dorothea Dix Mental Hospital in Raleigh.

On June 15, 2015, all charges against the suspect were dropped.
