Gastonia Police investigating Eastover Drive homicide

Gastonia Police are looking for a suspect after a man was found dead in his home.

Police were called to the home on Eastover Drive around 6 p.m. Sunday night. Police tell FOX 46 they found Charles Littlejohn inside the house. He had been assaulted and was unresponsive.

Neighbors say they would often see him on his front porch. 

"You know, I'd come by, this is my route to the shop where I'd get parts, and I'd drive by, and kinda cut thru his yard, and I'd say, Hi Sig!, and he'd say, yeah, hey. So you know, it's going to be a little, you know, quiet, not seeing him anymore. You know, kind of miss him," said Jeffrey Bowers, neighbor.

Gastonia Police are continuing to investigate.
