A 33-year-old man has been charged with killing his father in a case that in­cluded an hours-long stand­off with Durham County sher­iff’s deputies on Tues­day.

Chivalry Moore of Kin­ston, who was shot by a deputy dur­ing the stand­off, was ar­rested Satur­day on a mur­der charge, ac­cord­ing to the sher­iff’s of­fice. The ar­rest came af­ter Moore was re­leased from the hos­pi­tal.

The sher­iff’s of­fice said deputies were called to 5706 Tom­a­hawk Trail just be­fore 6 p.m. Tues­day for a “wel­fare check.” Moore had bar­ri­caded him­self inside the home, and deputies en­tered af­ter a roughly five-hour stand­off. Moore suf­fered non­life-threat­en­ing in­juries as a re­sult of be­ing shot.

Inside the home, in­ves­ti­ga­tors found the body of 60-year-old Wil­lie Moore, the sher­iff’s of­fice said Thurs­day. Wil­lie Moore owned the home, ac­cord­ing to Durham County prop­erty records.

Deputy David Ber­mel, who shot Chivalry Moore, was placed on paid leave, which is stan­dard prac­tice af­ter an of­fi­cer-in­volved shoot­ing. Ber­mel has been with the Durham County Sher­iff’s Of­fice since 2013, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease Sun­day.

The State Bureau of Investigation is look­ing into the shoot­ing.

“The Durham County Sher­iff’s Of­fice would like to thank the res­i­dents of the San­dle­wood neigh­bor­hood for their pa­tience and co­op­er­a­tion dur­ing the in­ci­dent and the sub­se­quent investigation,” the news re­lease said.

Chivalry Moore is be­ing held in the Durham County jail with­out bond. His first court ap­pear­ance is set for Mon­day.
