Kennon charged with murder in shooting of 18-y/o


Last night at about 11:00, deputies were dispatched to a reported “shooting” at 183 Brightwood Road in Eden. Upon arrival, Deputy K.M. Fulton reported meeting an irate and uncooperative “Bo” Kennon, 42, of that address.

Deputy Fulton made her way near the door of the living room and found Travis Clark, 18, of that address. He had suffered an obvious gunshot wound.

The scene was then secured, and detectives were called to investigate the incident. Initial results of that investigation indicated that a domestic argument had occurred between “Bo” Kennon and Lynette Dawson Clark that led to the shooting death of her 18 year-old son, Travis.

At 4:40 this morning, Emmett Jasper “Bo” Kennon, Jr. was charged with FIRST DEGREE MURDER. He was not given bond and is currently confined in the Rockingham County Detention Facility.
