The NC State Bureau of Investigation and Selma Police are investigating the death of a person found inside a home near Downtown Selma Wednesday afternoon.

Selma Police, Selma Fire and Johnston County EMS responded to a 4:54pm 911 call reporting a body had been found inside a home at 410 W. Preston Street.

Officers declined to release details on how the victim may have died or their identity pending further investigation by police detectives and SBI agents.

More than two dozen people lined W. Preston Street across from the home watching officers secure crime scene tape around the home and a car parked on the street. One neighbor said she didn’t see or hear anything on the block until police cars began to arrive.
