FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (WNCN) — More than one week after a man was killed and a woman was injured in a shooting, Fayetteville police announced Monday that they’ve found the suspected gunman and have pressed charges.
Carl McGill, 24, was arrested on Thursday, police said, and is facing charges of first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder.
McGill is being held at the Cumberland County Jail without bond, police added.
Police told CBS 17 that the double shooting happened around 6 p.m. in the 1900 block of North Street, that is north of downtown Fayetteville.
At the scene, police found a man later identified as 22-year-old Alonzo Clark, with multiple gunshot wounds, officials said. He was taken to Cape Fear Valley Hospital, where he was pronounced dead, according to police.
The woman suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound, police said, resulting in the attempted first-degree murder charge.
At least eight evidence markers, typically used to note the location of spent rounds, were seen in the street near a home behind apartments at the corner of Williston Street.
After the shooting, police blocked off part of the parking lot at the apartments in addition to closing down a section of North Street.
Authorities said anyone with information about the shooting should call Detective D. Arnett at (910) 929-2565 or Crimestoppers at (910) 483-TIPS (8477).
