Death – Group marches to honor man killed in possible road rage shooting in Fayetteville

Death – Obituary

FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — A group of people held a march Saturday after a motorcyclist was gunned down earlier this week in a possible road rage case in Fayetteville.

Stephen Addison, 32, was shot just after 12:30 p.m. Monday on Skibo Road, near the intersection with Cliffdale Road. Addison later died at a nearby hospital.

Later that day, Roger Nobles, 51, was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in the shooting, which police said appears to be a case of road rage.

Saturday afternoon, a group of about 30 people held a march seeking “justice” for Addison. Traffic was briefly blocked during the march.

Those who honored Addison said he was a U.S. Army veteran, a husband, and a father.

The group, which had several signs, marched from Walmart in the 1500 block of Skibo Road to the scene of the shooting at the corner of Skibo and Cliffdale roads.

The group then marched nearly two miles back to Walmart with dozens of motorcyclists behind them.

Some of the signs said, “Justice 4 Tre” and “Justice for Stephen.” The marchers chanted “Who got murdered? Stephen Addison.”

Marchers Saturday said Addison was shot while riding his motorcycle following a visit to a gym.

Nobles is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center without bond.

What Is An Obituary

In national newspapers an obituary (obit for short) is a news article that reports the recent death of a prominent person. Although it tends to focus on positive aspects of the subject’s life this is not always the case. According to Nigel Farndale, the Obituaries Editor of The Times: “Obits should be life affirming rather than gloomy, but they should also be opinionated, leaving the reader with a strong sense of whether the subject lived a good life or bad; whether they were right or wrong in the handling of their public affairs.”

In local newspapers, an obituary may be published for any local resident upon death. A necrology is a register or list of records of the deaths of people related to a particular organization, group or field, which may only contain the sparsest details, or small obituaries. Historical necrologies can be important sources of information.
