Deputy charged with murder in Strickland shooting
From staff reports
Cpl. Christopher M. Long has been charged with second-degree murder in connection with the Dec. 1 shooting death of Peyton Strickland, District Attorney Ben David said today.
Strickland, 18, was shot in the head and right shoulder area and fatally wounded Dec. 1 in the house he lived in at 533 Long Leaf Acres Drive. Strickland’s death is attributed to a gunshot wound to the head, officials said.
His shooting came as members of the sheriff’s heavily armed and armored Emergency Response Team and UNCW police officers sought to arrest Strickland at his home at 533 Long Leaf Acres Drive. Strickland had been charged in connection with the Nov. 17 robbery of two PlayStation 3 game stations from a UNCW student.
The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the shooting.
On Friday, Sheriff Sid Causey announced that Long had been fired. Long was one of three deputies placed on administrative leave after the shooting. The other two are Sgt. Greg Johnson, Detective Larry Robinson and Long.
David said today that Johnson and Robinson had been cleared in the investigation.
Long, 34, was hired on July 31, 1996, as a New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office deputy.
Long was serving as a corporal, making an annual salary of $43,323.
Long was involved in a shooting incident on Feb. 8, 2001, involving two teenagers in the 1600 block of Queen Street. Long had made a traffic stop and approached the car to ask the occupants about the license plates, which did not match the car.
Long said the driver, 17-year-old Gregory Donell Miller, attempted to run him over before pulling away. Long fired at Miller and 18-year-old Terry Lamar Green, wounding both. Then-District Attorney John Carriker decided in April 2001 that no charges would be filed against Long.
“It was my feeling from the beginning that the shooting was in self-defense, and so now I’m just glad he has been exonerated,” then-Sheriff Sonny Lanier said at the time.
A Superior Court jury convicted Miller later in 2001 of assault with a deadly weapon on a law enforcement officer. He and Green were also convicted of possession with intent to sell and deliver marijuana for just over half an ounce of the drug found by the brake pedal in the car.
Green died in a June 2004 shooting that Wilmington police said was drug-related.

(Wilmington, NC-AP) December 11, 2006 - A New Hanover County sheriff's deputy who was fired last week is charged Monday with killing a teenager who was accused of stealing two video game consoles.
The charges were filed in the death of Peyton Strickland, who was shot in the head December First as deputies and police from UNC Wilmington converged on the house he shared with friends while attending Cape Fear Community College.
The officers were there to serve a warrant that accused Strickland and two others of armed robbery and assault.

OK, so he wounded a couple of guys who tried to kill him before, and was cleared of any wrongdoing. What's that got to do with what just happened?\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\
