GERMANTON, N.C.--A 35-year old Mt. Airy man was found dead Monday morning in Germanton on the front porch of a house after someone called 911 to report a break-in.
Deputies found Barry Dail Shinault lying on the front porch of a house on Grakeintemple Court at 4:30 a.m. after responding to a call about a house break-in.
Shinault sustained a gunshot wound to the chest, according to investigators.
Authorities conducted interviews with four people at the residence and found that Shinault had a history with them. A release from the Forsyth County Sheriff's Office stated Shinault had committed criminal acts toward the tenants of the house in the past.
The Forsyth County Sheriff's Office along with the Forsyth County District Attorney's Office are investigating the shooting.
