Former State star Charles Shackleford has died in Kinston. He was 50. Police are investigating his death but there is no more information available yet.

Affectionately remembered for saying that he could go left or right because he was amphibious, Shackleford was a talented but erratic forward who spent six years in the NBA.

We’ll post more news when it is available.
