Two Roanoke Rapids men are wanted in a murder which occurred in the Cypress Court area of Weldon this morning.

Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp said this evening the men wanted — Rashon Demetric Jordan, 29, and Dashawn Moore, 26 — were familiar with the victim — Larry Williams Jr. of Weldon.

Tripp said both men frequent the Roanoke Rapids and Weldon areas.

He said in a statement robbery appears to be the motive, but declined to immediately elaborate.

When deputies arrived on a shooting call they found Williams had been shot and was deceased at the scene.

Several shots were fired at the location. 

It was reported that the suspects drove up on a vehicle, but after the shooting they fled on foot. 

In processing evidence from the scene the identity of the shooters was identified. 

Warrants for first-degree murder have been obtained on the men.

Anyone with information is encouraged to call Crimestoppers at 252-583-4444 or the sheriff’s office at 252-583-8201.
