Basketball coach dies in cartel drug rip

Teacher and coach Barney Dale Harris was killed in a drug rip shootout with a Mexican drug cartel, the Alamance County Sheriff's Office annouced. Harris and his brother-in-law, Steven Alexander Stewart, went to the stash house of a Mexican drug cartel to steal drugs and money. They shot Alonso Beltran Lara twice in the head. Harris was wearing a bulletproof vest, but the vest was no match for the high-caliber weapons used by the cartel.
Stewart survived and was arrested; he's charged with armed robbery and murder. Cops found 30 shell casings inside and outside the home and bullet holes in three nearby homes. Inside, deputies seized two pounds of cocaine and $7k in cash.
