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.
