Fayetteville police are investigating after a man was fatally shot early Saturday morning, officials said.

Curtis Lamont Melvin, 50, of Spring Lake, was fatally shot in the 1000 block of West Orange Street, a residential area off Ramsey Street, shortly before 4:45 a.m., according to a Fayetteville Police Department news release. Melvin was found with multiple gunshot wounds outside of a residence and was pronounced dead on scene, the release said.

Melvin's killing was the first homicide for the Fayetteville Police Department since Oct. 21, when Coryonna Young, the 15-year-old daughter of Fayetteville City Councilmember Courtney Banks-McLaughlin, was fatally shot.
