CARY, N.C. (WNCN) — A second arrest was made Friday night in the deadly shooting of a Harnett County high school student while she was sleeping last month, officials said Saturday.
Iyania Rhone, 18, was asleep when someone fired several rounds into her Bunnlevel-Erwin Road home in Erwin from a car on very early on March 23.
Rhone was struck in the pelvic area and was transported to Cape Fear Valley hospital where she later died, the sheriff’s office said.
Rhone was a senior at Harnett Central High School.
A day after the shooting, Harnett County Sheriff Wayne Coats said Baron Lee Lyons Jr., 27, of Apex, was taken into custody.
Lyons was charged with first-degree murder, felony conspiracy to commit murder, and 10 counts of discharging a weapon into an occupied dwelling.
At the time, a warrant was issued for Jaylan Kashon Jackson, 18, of Angier.
