Rally planned as family seeks answers in Harnett County man’s death

— Family members and friends of a Harnett County man killed last month in an officer-involved shooting want answers about his death, and they are planning a rally Thursday morning at the county courthouse.

John Livingston, 33, was shot and killed on the front porch of his Spring Lake home Nov. 15.

Friends say they were at Livingston’s home when deputies arrived at about 3:30 a.m. to investigate a reported assault.

Witnesses say Livingston told deputies the couple they were looking for didn’t live at the Everett Street home, and when deputies asked to search the home, witnesses say Livingston refused because the deputies did not have a search warrant.

Deputies say that’s when Livingston became combative and was shot. A deputy sustained minor injuries in the confrontation.

​Deputy Nicholas Kehagias has been placed on administrative leave while the North Carolina State Bureau of Investigation reviews the incident, which is standard procedure.

Kehagias has worked with the Harnett County Sheriff’s Office since July 2013 and is assigned to the Patrol Division.
