Accused Killer Barry Long No Stranger to CMPD Officers, Pot, Booze or Trouble







Barry Dean Long has had a hell of a year. He was arrested in February and then again in April, his rapid downward spiral was fueled by drugs, pot and booze. It all came to a crashing halt Wednesday night during a gun fight with a co-worker who was trying to leave a party.

Witnesses report that the two men had an ongoing feud and often threatened each other. Conflicting reports have emerged regarding William Twitty the deceased. One report says Twitty went to his car to get his gun and Long shot him at point blank range.

Long was arrested in February and charged with having a fake license plate, failure to comply with driving restrictions, open container and possion of marijuana. In April he was again arrested and charged with many of the same offenses.

Last night Long was charged with Murder.

This story is totally wrong! They were not co-workers, never had feud, Barry was just trying to give him ride home because Twity was too drunk to drive. Channel 14 News is way off on it's story. People should get story straight before commenting!

OK let me see if I can follow you 9:04 Long was just trying to help Twitty, because Twitty was too drunk to drive.

So he did him a favor by shooting in the chest? Well maybe the judge will let him off, after all we don't want any drunk driving out of the highways now do we?

I am a very good friend to the Britton Twitty the deceased. Good ridence to both these loser? You more then likely have never met either of them so dont say a word about him you are pathetic. Crack heads with guns? Sorry he was not a crack head he was actually going to school working full time and spent a great deal of time with his family. I dont know where you get off coming on here and saying those things, but you people are pathetic. They were both drinking, so a drunk man was going to drive a drunk man home, yeah almost makes sense. How about you people get your facts straight and quit talking smack on those you don't know. Get a life. He was shot point blank trying to calm himself down from an argument, at his vehicle. Didn't know that made him a crackhead and loser. Britton was a great man who would do anything for his friends and family. In the end it was a great loss, 23 years old come on people. Get your facts straight before you come on these things talking smack on stories you don't even know. RIP Britton.

I am really sorry about what happened but sorry for all that believe that it one just one persons fault. It was self defense and in the end the truth came out. The news had it all wrong. Barry has had some problems just like anyone else but he is not a killer! He is a very caring person and hates what happened.

Britton's Mom said...

To the person who said in the end the truth came out...if you were there in court you would know the truth; not enough evidence and the only people there were Barry and his brother so no one to speak for Britton or tell the story untainted. Since you say he is sorry, which I guess he is as sorry as someone who was drunk and on drugs, driving without a license, and lets not forget carrying a stolen weapon. Yes sorry as one could be for taking a gun and shooting it five times with two bullets hitting and killing Britton leaving him to die in his truck all while Brittons gun had not been shot and didnt have a clip in it, yes I can see sorry. An in regards to the police were wrong??? No matter if Britton had been drinking and wanted to drive home there are other options like calling the police, going inside and locking your door, walking away. There is no remorse that Barry or his family could have that could take away the fact that Britton is dead and Britton's family and friends will never be the same. So my dear who types out "oh no it was in self defense" where is the self defense for those lives left in the wake of this that are wounded and heartbroken.I can only hope that Barry gets help for his addictions so he doesnt hurt anyone else and that you stop being an enabler! Take your energy and get the help that you all need...sincerly and wholehearted Britton's mom.

Way---I have seen the facts and reports, Britton did not even have a clip in his gun. He was shot outside of his truck and the gun was inside....SO how is this self defense. Britton was shot point blank with the intent to kill, not scare, not wound but to kill. Barry was so messed up on drinking and drugs the police could not even understand what he was saying when they arrived. 5 shots were fired and all from Barrys gun. 2 shots hit Britton. There is no talking and reasoning with some dumb people like you said which shows you were talking about yourself. I dont wish bad on people, but next time it may be your family member he shoots, then lets see your comments SUPERMAN!!! He may have walked on this case but I can almost bet he is living his life looking over his shoulder wondering if someone is going to take him out...AND one day the man above will be ready for him to place his judgement and thats when the punishment begins.... RIP Britton, We love you!!!

barry dean long you are a dead man walking... you messed up big time... you pulled a gun on the wrong person. he might not have the chance to get you back now because you are a low life scum bag that thinks you are fucking cool because you have a gun. well guess what you son of a bitch your done. he cant do it but i will live your life while you can you fucking coward

Brokenhearted Mother said...

To "way" and anyone else with smart remarks....please stop ...my son is dead and you speak as if you think you have great knowledge of this situation...yet from your responses it is apparent you do not...and I, yes "I" lived and continue to live this situation every day. I am the one who worked with and spoke with the homicide detectives and know the facts that they knew...do you???...do you live every day with the pain and agony that my family and I do because a man chose to take a gun (obtained without permission)and drive illegally due to his provision license restrictions to his brothers house and get out of a car and shoot 5 times, these are FACTS that my family has to live with everyday....take your energy to make the world a better place...assist this man that you are willing to stand up for with very incorrect information and help him to become healthy...he obviously hasnt achieved that as you can see the last months CMP mug shot and charges which prove he is still putting others in danger. Come on an arrest at 1 pm in the afternoon driving while impaired after getting 4 charges in Cabarras County a few weeks prior(just think lots of moms are driving or walking with their children and when an sitution occures where impaired judgement causes another death what excuse will you have for him then). Take you energy and give his mother a hug and take the time to pray every day that he will make better choices because she has a heart that I would only imagine is in pain to (any mother wants the best for their child). If you believe in a higher power then give thanks to those in the Long family who are striving to get him help and not continuing to enable unhealthy behaviors. Remember that they could be financially and emotionally stressed too as most family members want the best for their father or brother..want them to have a future. Britton's family wanted the very best for him but his future was taken by the choices that were made that night.
All these comments and smart remarks arent helping...take your energy and anger and turn that into power to make a change, to help others, to be proactive. There are many ways that you can make the world a better place and prevent others from having to feel the anguish that is caused by situations like this.

Above all DO NOT CONFUSE MY HEARTBREAK WITH ANGER, anger is part of what killed my son...there is no room in my heart for that.
