GARNER, N.C. (WNCN) – Two teens have been charged with murder in the death of a 21-year-old last week, the Johnston County Sheriff’s Office said.
Additionally, a 21-year-old woman is being held for accessory after the fact the Sheriff’s Office said Thursday.
Deputies said 21-year-old Harley Alexander Shirley was found shot to death at the Sheetz at Cornwallis Road and N.C. 42 in Garner.
They also said a 20-year-old woman was taken to the hospital with serious but non-life-threatening injuries.
Shirley was the son of “Lizard Lick Towing” TV star Ron Shirley, according to a Facebook post by the company. The reality TV show ran on truTV for four seasons starting in 2011.
On Wednesday, the sheriff’s office said a 17-year-old from Willow Spring and a 16-year-old from Garner have been charged with murder and attempted murder.
Additionally, Cassidy Lorene Hunter, of Smithfield, is now being held in the Johnston County Detention Center under a $1,000,000 secured bond for accessory after the fact to Shirley’s murder, as well as the 20-year-old’s shooting.
