Tripp said, as of this report, bond has yet to be set for Lloyd, who will face a charge of murder and breaking and entering.
The murder charge stems from a shooting around 5 this morning on Baker's School Road in which Battle was killed.
Tripp declined to immediately comment why Battle was in the Scotland Neck area.
Following the shooting, Lloyd fled through an open field which led to River Road where he broke into a house where the owner fired at him.
Lloyd was taken into custody by deputies at that scene.
A search of state Department of Public Safety records shows a past history of assault on a female and communicating threats for Lloyd. No matches were found for Battle
