According to WCNC Charlotte, men's basketball coach at Union Academy, Barney Harris, was killed in a shootout with a Mexican drug cartel in Alamance County, North Carolina last week...

According to the Alamance County Sheriff’s Office, Barney Harris died on Thursday, April 8 in a shootout with a drug cartel. Investigators said Harris and another person went to a stash house in Alamance County last week to steal money and drugs from the cartel.

"It was believed that this was during a home invasion for money and drugs," said Sheriff Terry Johnson.

Harris and his partner Steven Alexander Stewart Jr., who was identified as his brother-in-law, then killed a drug runner for the cartel before a shootout started. Harris was shot and killed during the gunfire. Harris was found inside the house shot multiple times. Investigators said Harris was wearing a bulletproof vest that did not protect him from the ammunition used in the shooting.

Stewart was arrested and is charged with first-degree murder and first-degree burglary.

"I can tell you this right now. When we are dealing with the Mexican drug cartel, somebody's probably going to die as a result of this right here, somewhere else. And we did not want to put it out there until we could get a good grip of what's going on here," Johnson said.

Unless I am reading this wrong, he was not killed in a shoot out with a cartel (Is that just an idea?), he and a buddy raided a drug house hoping for loot and drugs for themselves, and it did not work out so well.
